New Years Safety Tips

Good morning Peachtree Corners!!!!  It has been a great year and I wanted to give you guys some last minute tips for a safe New Year.

If you are hosting a party:
  • Plan ahead by naming a "designated driver." Make this your responsibility. Remember that buzzed driving is drunk driving.
  • Contact a local cab company to provide rides for you and/or your guests.
  • Stop serving alcohol to your guests several hours before the party ends.
  • Provide your guests with a place to stay overnight in your home.
  • Take the keys from someone if you think he/she is too impaired to drive.
  • Staying inside at midnight to celebrate with friends and family is always the safest place to be.
  • DO NOT fire weapons into the air. Bullets and projectiles can travel long distances causing injury and death. You have no control where a projectile will land when fired indiscriminately into the air.
If you are the designated driver:
  • Be a defensive driver.
  • Keep distractions (cell phones, food, and drunk friends) to a minimum.
  • Make sure that you and your passengers are wearing a seat belt.
  • Find a safe location and call 9-1-1 if you see a drunk driver on the road.
Thank you guys and have a wonderful evening,

Officer Shane Kelly #660
