Get a ride if need be to your holiday celebrations

December 23, 2018

NORFOLK - Many will be heading out to some weekend celebrations before the holidays and the Nebraska State Patrol wants you to be safe.

Troop B Trooper Gena Jones says with the extra enforcement out over the holidays, let that be a reminder to not drink and drive.

“Make sure if you’re going to those types of activities you have a plane ahead of time to get a ride home. The best thing to do is to get a ride to the event, so that way you’re not putting yourself at risk or anyone else by driving intoxicated.”

Jones says with the added traffic, it may be a better idea to arrange a ride so you don’t have to deal with potential road rage.

Trooper Jones was a guest on News Talk WJAG’s monthly Tips from a Trooper segment.
