New Year's Eve Safety Tips

As we ring in 2019, be sure to stay safe on the road. Follow these tips for a happy and safer New Year’s Eve:

  • Plan a safe way home before the fun begins.

  • Buckle up. A seatbelt is your vehicle’s most important safety feature, but it only works if you use it.

  • Before drinking, designate a sober driver.

  • If you’re impaired and did not designate a driver, use a ride service, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation so you are sure to get home safely.

  • If you happen to see an impaired driver on the road, don’t hesitate to contact local law enforcement or dial *FHP (*347). This call could save a life.

  • Remember, possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a vehicle (in motion or stopped) by the driver and/or the passenger(s) is a violation of Florida law.
