With New Year’s Eve on the horizon, we thought it fitting to have a conversation about the dangers of drinking and driving and offer some thoughts to help keep you safe!
According to the SafeAuto.com compared to an average night of the week, there are 71% more crashes with drugs or alcohol as a factor on New Year’s Eve.
It is obvious from the statistic above; many choose to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after they have consumed alcohol. Part of the issue is that many adult drivers seem to think that because they are good drivers, they can handle having a drink and then getting behind the wheel to drive home. Statistically males are 3 times more likely to drive after having a drink or two.
PLEASE keep in mind: When you make the decision to get behind the wheel after you have had a drink or two, you are putting not just yourself but also your family at risk. Driving after drinking is simply not worth the risk! One bad choice can have a much more far-reaching affect that you can image! It can destroy your family, your reputation and your financial future!
We want you to have fun on New Year’s Eve while staying safe! We hope that some of the information in the blog served as a reminder to help you make smart choices as you plan your celebration. From all of here at Advocate Brokerage, we wish you and your family a very Happy New Year!
