All across Michigan, residents and visitors will soon be raising a glass to 2017. But without a designated driver, a New Year’s Eve celebration can quickly turn into a tragic drunk driving accident. Don’t put yourself or your loved ones at risk. Get a Safe Ride Home from Christensen Law.
Last year, Christensen Law founder David Christensen decided to take proactive steps to reduce drunk driving accidents in Metro Detroit. So he created the Safe Ride Home program to offer free rides to residents who have had too much to drink on Thanksgiving Eve.
The Safe Ride Home initiative made appearances again on New Year’s Eve 2015, St. Patrick’s Day, Independence Day, and Thanksgiving Eve 2016. So far, the program has helped over 300 residents get home safely after holiday celebrations. And it will be available again this December 31.
The Safe Ride Home program is especially important this year, as Michigan is seeing a rise in fatal car accidents and drunk driving deaths. In 2015, Michigan State Police reported 963 deaths, compared to 876 the year before. And that number appears to be climbing again this year.
The picture isn’t much prettier when alcohol becomes involved. Nationwide, there was a 5% increase in fatal passenger car accidents involving alcohol. Michigan drunk driving fatalities jumped by 55 incidents during the same period.
This year Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard has stepped forward to support Christensen Law’s Safe Ride Home program:
“Keep yourselves and others safe this New Year’s Eve by not drinking and driving,” said Sheriff Bouchard. “If you do drink, designate a driver, or find a service like Uber or a cab to take you home. Safe Ride Home is helping to encourage folks to make the right decision related to responsible drinking.”
Many people enjoy New Year’s Eve with alcohol. But if you do, make sure you plan how to get a Safe Ride Home. Choose a designated driver, or take advantage of Christensen Law’s offer to pay for your cab or Uber ride.
If you’ve had too much to drink on New Year’s Eve, you can take advantage of Safe Ride Home. Here are the details:
