New Year’s is a time for new beginnings and celebration. However, because of the drinking associated with these festivities, it’s also a potentially dangerous time. This year, stay safe with these automotive safety tips from your local ABRA Auto Repair Shop!
3 Tips for Safe New Year’s Driving
1. Don’t Drink
The easiest way to prevent a DUI or a drunk driving incident is to abstain from drinking for the night. Instead, try celebrating in other ways such as baking a delicious dessert or playing a board game with friends.
2. Find a Designated Driver
If you are going to drink on New Year’s, remember to find a designated driver. Try coordinating with a friend or relative beforehand and see if they’ll be able to give you a ride home after the festivities. Not only will it keep you safe but it also protects other drivers on the road.
3. Hire a Service
If you cannot find someone to be your designated driver, try hiring a driving service like Uber, Lyft, or even a traditional taxi.
