Statistically, 42% of the deaths that occur on New years Eve are from drunk driving. That’s higher than on any other holiday.

Unfortunately, it’s not always the drunk driver that becomes a fatality. Many times, the victim is in the other car, or is a passenger in the drunk’s vehicle.

And drunk drivers are not the only danger; distracted drivers can also be the cause of bad accidents.

Here are 3 tips for staying safe while driving in Kentucky on New Year’s Eve:

-Be Patient: The roads can be very busy on new Years Eve, so take your time. Give yourself plenty of time to get where you need to be. And don’t get frustrated with other drivers….especially ones that are driving erratically. Those are the drivers you want to avoid.

-Stay Focused: It’s important to keep your eyes, and your mind, on what you are doing: driving. There are so many potential distractions, including cell phones and passengers.

-Be Sober: Don’t be the drunk driver that causes an accident. The financial penalties are bad enough, but causes physical and emotional pain to the victims and their families may be more than you can handle. Please…designate a sober driver.
