Safe Ride Home Will Not Be in Effect on New Year’s Eve
Christensen Law is proud to announce that the popular Safe Ride Home program will be returning for Thanksgiving Eve. This date, also known as “Blackout Wednesday,” is one of the top drunk driving nights of the year. Also, hazardous weather conditions can make the drive home treacherous.
On this night, Michigan sees an increasing number of alcohol-impaired drivers taking to the roads and suffering or causing catastrophic injuries and even death.
As a personal injury law firm, we see drunk driving accidents up close and personal—and all too frequently. Far too many families suffer at the hands of drunk drivers, and with this in mind, we decided we had to do our part to put a stop to it.
“Too many people are killed on Michigan roads each year,” Attorney David Christensen said. “The number rose 10 percent in 2015, which is what inspired our Safe Ride Home program.”
Launched on Thanksgiving Eve in 2015, the Safe Ride Home program has been incredibly successful over the years, providing over 2,000 drivers with a safe way home during the most alcohol-heavy holidays of the year.
