New Year’s Eve is a time of celebration, which often means that the night will involve alcoholic drinks, dancing, and all the elements of a good party. While annual New Year’s Eve parties can be loads of fun, they can end in a devastating arrest if drivers are not careful. If you choose to drink at your New Year’s celebration, then you should not drive afterwards. You may want to designate a driver that will stay sober and provide transportation to and from the party. Oftentimes, it’s difficult to find a friend willing to take on this role. As a result, you may want to consider hiring a professional driver to transport you to and from your event on New Year’s Eve.
You can hire a taxi cab in Houston to take you back to your home. As well, if you are travelling to a party with a lot of friends, you may want to hire a party bus or a limousine. Not only will this arrangement keep you safe from a DUI, but it will also be a lot more fun. Whether you designate a driver, hire a professional transportation service, or opt for public transportation, you should never get in the car and drive home after having too much to drink. During the holidays, the Houston Police Department often adds extra DUI checkpoints all throughout the city and has many roving patrols looking for drivers that are swerving, disobeying traffic signals or speeding.
Police know that New Year’s Eve is a time of partying and alcohol. Therefore, they are on the lookout. While the police may seem like an enemy on New Year’s Eve, their goal is noble.
