MADD, The Center for Disease Control, law enforcement  and others all support well publicized DUI checkpoints as a deterrent for drivers that want to drink. Plan ahead, get your designated driver.
As a victim of a drunk driver, it is my wish that by posting this you will choose to not drink and drive.

For more information on getting a ride see below, it’s at the bottom of this post.

“A free tow home if you get drunk! And you don’t even have to be a member…Typically, during specified hours on New Years Eve and possibly New Years Day, you get a one-time free tow for a limited number of miles (no rides for your passengers) to your residence.
This isn’t a concierge service and is not to be taken advantage of.
Save Tipsy-Tow as a last ditch effort and have a plan for other ways to get home safely.
Tow truck drivers risk their lives with every hook-up. So only use Tipsy-Tow if you really need it.”
