The New York State Police have an important role to play in road safety. By pulling over drivers and ticketing or arresting them, they're keeping other drivers safe from reckless or negligent individuals.
Mahopac is no stranger to crashes or injuries as a result of drunk drivers, so the New York State Police's job is just as vital there as anywhere else. Officers have been working hard to keep the roads safer throughout the state. With the number of holiday parties and events taking place in December, what people should focus on is how to get from one place to another safely.
What's the safest way to travel if you're intoxicated?
The best way to travel is to avoid driving yourself. You can have a friend or family member drive, or call a taxi service, ride-share service or take public transportation. Preventing motor vehicle accidents is important, and as you can see, driving while intoxicated can get you into trouble with the law.
One good option is to call a ride-share service. Did you know that you can put your credit card information into a phone app, schedule a ride in advance or call on demand? It's a great option if you're not sure if you're going to need a ride or to get a ride to and from an event.
Another option is to carry a Breathalyzer to give yourself a breath test. A good Breathalyzer fits into the palm of your hand and is discreet while letting you know if it's safe for you to drive.
There are options other than getting behind the wheel when drunk, so consider them for the safety of others and yourself.
