Senior Safety Tip of the Month - December 2019
Sergeant Bob’s Holiday Season Safe Driving Reminders
Four brief reminders to help you stay safe on the roads this holiday season while enjoying the company of family and friends.
No alcohol or cannabis - recreational or otherwise - while driving. Cannabis legalization will have police checking closely.
Expect to see R.I.D.E. (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) spot checks. Slow carefully and stop for the officers - interior lights on and hands on the wheel in clear view. If you’re not impaired by drugs or alcohol, you’ll be on your way in no time.
Make sure your vehicle is ready for demanding weather - winter tires, lights, defroster, wipers, washer fluid, etc. Pre-winter preparation means safer travels when your Christmas schedule becomes hectic.
Plan your transportation options NOW. To avoid collisions, criminal charges, financial loss and untold grief, consider your options early: designated driver, taxi, ride sharing services, public transportation, overnight accommodation.
Discuss these tips with new drivers, and remind young people to never get into a car with a driver who appears to be impaired.
