As we move from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, most of us have plenty of opportunities to get together with family and friends on our calendars. And whether those events are company parties or neighborhood gatherings, many can involve alcohol. In fact, one survey shows that 16% of adults admit that they drink more than usual during the holiday season.* Unfortunately, this translates to an increased risk of driving under the influence or sharing the road with intoxicated drivers.
The easiest way to reverse this trend is to always arrange for a safe ride home if you plan on drinking this holiday season. With cabs, ridesharing services, and public transportation available throughout the state, this step is now easier than it has ever been.
Carter Mario Law Firm is committed to spreading awareness of the dangers of drunk driving in Connecticut. We even sponsor promotions that allow our neighbors in the communities we serve to receive free or subsidized cab rides home during the holidays.
