This time of year, with all the holiday parties and festive occasions, many party goers will be drinking. Over the next few days, the roads will be filled with many drivers; some who may be under the influence.  If you are planning on drinking at any holiday parties, designate a driver. Even after one drink, you are still impaired to drive. If you end up at a holiday event and end up drinking, call a friend or a cab. Here is a link to all of the different cab services in Knoxville. 

Area drivers, please follow these tips to keep the holidays safe and happy:

  • Even one drink can impair your judgment and increase the risk of getting arrested for driving drunk—or worse, the risk of having a crash.
  • If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving.  Plan ahead; designate a sober driver before the party begins.
  • If you have been drinking, do not drive. Call a taxi, phone a sober friend or family member, or just stay put.

Remember, it is never safe to drink and drive: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. Please keep Knoxville, yourself and other drivers safe this holiday season. 

Make the right choices!
