New Year’s Eve – Celebrate Responsibly
While you are making plans for how you will spend New Year’s Eve please remember to make a plan to get home safely before you go out.  Make sure you have a safe way home by either not drinking, having a designated driver, or getting a ride home with a taxi or other ride service.  Don’t assume you’ll be okay driving because you haven’t had a lot to drink or you feel okay.  It takes less than you think to impair your ability to drive, don’t take a chance with your safety and the safety of others on the road.  Officers across the region will be patrolling, looking for drivers who are impaired by alcohol or drugs.  Remember for us, each DUI arrest is a DUI accident prevented.  For information about the New Year’s Eve celebration in Annapolis visit
