Protect Yourself from a Washington New Year’s Eve Car Accident: Drive Safely

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on December 26, 2012

WA New Years Drunk Driving AccidentNew Year’s Eve offers many Washington residents the chance to celebrate, whether it’s a small party with family or friends or a giant bash in downtown Seattle with thousands of excited partygoers. Unfortunately, an increased consumption of alcohol during the New Year also increases the number of drunk drivers on Washington roads, multiplying the risk of an accident.

You can help reduce this risk of a serious car accident ruining your New Year or the holidays of those you love by keeping in mind a few safety tips this December 31:

  • If you’re the host: Help your guests have a safe holiday. Serve plenty of non-alcoholic beverage options, close the bar at least an hour before the party is scheduled to end, and be prepared to call a cab or offer guests space to “crash” if they don’t seem able to drive safely.
  • If you’re going out: Choose a safe and sober way home before you leave for a bar or party. Public transportation, cabs, or designated drivers may all be options you can use to avoid a serious car accident this New Year. Help friends find sober routes home as well by connecting them with designated drivers, public transportation, or cabs.
