The new year is coming up, but before that we all have a chance to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Some people, unfortunately, will over-celebrate and cause serious car wrecks on our Dallas roads that will require the help of a Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer. In spite of travel service providers like Uber, too many people will get behind the wheel after having too much to drink.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), between 2001 and 2005, there were 54 fatalities per day involving alcohol impaired drivers over the New Year’s Holiday. They say that 42% of holiday deaths are due to drunk driving.
Plenty of transportation alternatives are available in the Dallas area. Uber, Lyft, and Wandervan are 3 that come to mind immediately for the Dallas, Denton, and Lewisville areas. These can be accessed thru apps on your smart phone. NTTA and DART offer bus and train service, and there are still plenty of taxi’s available. Designated drivers are always a great idea, but transportation services are a sure bet to ensure that nobody in your party drinks and drives. Leave your vehicle wherever you’re at and pick it up tomorrow. Give your keys to a trusted friend. Whatever you do, don’t drink and drive on our Dallas area roads this New Year’s Eve.
