Have a safe holiday time
Holiday party season is here and at many parties there will be beer, wine or liquor. So, it’s a good time to remind ourselves that if we drink, drink responsibly.
Don’t let that beer or glass of wine with dinner turn into more than that, and a blood alcohol content that could impair your driving.
Last December 753 people were killed across the country in crashes that involved a driver or motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. That’s the amount to be considered driving while intoxicated in most states, including Mississippi.
“We know that the holiday season can be one of the deadliest and most dangerous times on roadways, due to an increase in drunk driving,” New Albany Police Chief David Grisham said.
Grisham said that everyone needs to plan a safe way home before going to a holiday party and that includes designating a sober drive. If such a driver is unavailable, call a sober friend or family member for a ride.
Don’t become part of the drinking-driver problem. And don’t agree to ride home with someone who has had too much to drink.
Law enforcement officials will be out in force during the holidays to help keep our roads safe.
If you drink alcohol, do so responsibly, and have a safe and sane holiday season.
