With New Year’s Eve approaching, all of us at the Pfeifer Law Firm encourage drivers to phone a friend or a cab company before getting behind the wheel of a car if you’ve had a drink. Plan ahead before you go out for the evening and line up a designated driver or call a cab if you plan to drink. There will be many late-night drivers on the roadways leaving parties and driving tired. Keep yourself and others safe by calling a friend or a cab if you’ve been drinking or just feel too tired to drive. Here are a few cab company numbers that you can program into your phone before heading out for the evening:
Central Arkansas Taxi
Argenta Transportation Co.
Open 24 hours
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 41% of fatalities that occurred during the New Year’s holiday season over the past ten years involved drivers who were impaired by alcohol. During the 2014 holiday season, 830 people were killed due to drinking and driving related crashes.
Our family has been affected personally by a person choosing to drive while drunk. My wife’s aunt was on her way home when a drunk driver crossed the center line and hit her head on. Choosing to drive while intoxicated, even if it’s only a short distance home, can potentially change your life, and others’, forever.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” May 2016 bring you love, joy, happiness, and good health. Happy New Year from the Pfeifer Law Firm.
