12/29/2011

Fayetteville Police Greg Tabor wants to remind citizens of the critical importance of being safe and sober drivers as they celebrate this New Year’s Eve.

The Fayetteville Police Department will have extra officers working this New Year’s Eve and they will be looking for and cracking down on impaired drivers.   The Fayetteville Police Department wants to offer these tips to make your new year happy and safe.  

��        Plan ahead: Whenever you plan on consuming alcohol, designate a sober driver before going out and give that person your keys;

 

��        If you’re impaired, call a taxi, or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely;

 

��        Promptly report drunk drivers you see on the roadways to law enforcement;

 

��        If you know someone who is about to drive while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.
