Help Prevent New York Drunk Driving Accidents This Holiday Season

by William Mattar | December 19th, 2014

The holidays have arrived once again in New York, which means it’s time to celebrate the season with your friends and family. Many of the festivities will involve alcohol—so it’s important to refrain from drinking and driving.

New York drunk driving accident numbers tend to spike around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. In fact, dozens of people are injured or killed each year during December as the result of driving under the influence. So to help keep you and your loved ones safe, the Buffalo car accident lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices would like to offer several options to keep your travels safe during the coming weeks:

  • Pledge to Not Drink and Drive– Many organizations are urging drivers to sign a sheet that states they promise to refrain from drinking and driving.
  • Use a Designated Driver– At William Mattar, our team urges drivers to establish a designated driver before going out for the evening. If you find yourself without a driver though, we encourage you to consider using Designated Drivers of Buffalo. The company will meet you at your vehicle and provide you with a driver who will get both you and your vehicle home safely.
  • Call A Cab- If you don’t have a vehicle, simply call a taxi or ride sharing service to get you home safely.

At William Mattar, we offer a free case evaluation if you or someone you know was injured in a car accident. For your free case evaluation, contact one of our Buffalo car accident lawyers.
