Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah to all. During this holiday season, many of us will attend family parties or work parties. Food and drink will be plenitful as we celebrate this joyous season with friends, family and co-workers. Enjoy yourselves, eat, drink and be merry. But please, don't drink and drive.
Over the years, I have seen an increase in drunk driving (DUI/OWI) arrests around the holidays. Being charged with drunk driving can cause serious problems, including driver's license suspensions, job loss and incarceration.
If you are attending holiday parties or out celebrating the new year, use a designated driver, or call a cab. For the 25th year, Holiday Cab will be offering free cab rides home to impaired drivers. The program runs from December 20, 2012 to January 1, 2013. Holiday Cab can be reached at (260) 426-1301 between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m.
