‘Tis the season to be jolly and smart… As everyone travels from coast to coast this month, it’s important to highlight that there’s a possibility there will be a lot of drunk drivers on the road. If you notice an erratic behavior on the road, it is your responsibility to call the police and report the vehicle. You may be saving a life, including your own and those in the car with you.
Each year, local law enforcement officers are setting up road blocks through Jan. 1 around the holiday season to re-enforce safety on the road. If you’re caught driving under the influence, even if it’s your first DUI, you may be required to install an ignition interlock device if you’re caught in one of the 17 states that enforces the law. On Dec. 11, the National Transportation Safety Board recommended that all states follow those 17 states’ lead.
