At Paulson Coletti, we are all about celebrating the things that matter
most, including the New Year. This is a time to reflect on the past year,
make plans for the next one, and spend some quality time with your loved
ones. We are proud of what we accomplished in 2015 and look forward to
doing even more this upcoming year. Our clients’ well-being is our
main concern. This is why our team provides tips to make sure you stay
safe this New Year’s Eve. If you are injured,
call us to see if we may be able to help.
Call a Cab
If you plan on drinking to celebrate the New Year, please do so responsibly.
Remember the dangers of drinking and driving. When you drive while intoxicated,
you put yourself and anybody else on the road at risk of serious injury.
Call yourself a cab if you drink so you can avoid the serious repercussions
that come with driving while intoxicated.
Stay Over Where You Are
If you go to a friend or family member’s home and don’t want
to call a cab, we encourage you to stay over until you are sober enough
to drive. It is better to make sure you are completely safe than to venture
out of the home and on the road.
Watch for Other Drivers
Even if you do not drink, it can be dangerous to travel on New Year’s
Eve. Other drivers on the road may not exercise the same amount of caution
when it comes to the safety of people on the road and when they drink
and drive, it can cause
serious accidents. As a driver, you must remain aware of others driving to protect yourself
from serious injury.
Avoid Driving at Late Hours
We all do the countdown to midnight and then continue the celebration.
Oftentimes, this leads to drivers on the road at early hours of the morning.
People on the road at 1 or 2 a.m. who have had even the slightest to drink
may still be fatigued. It can cause drivers to fall asleep, resulting
in serious accidents.
