Florida Highway Patrol Troopers will be working the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign through New Year’s Day. In a press release, the FHP reminds motorists to plan ahead: “If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving. Designate a sober driver or find another safe way home. Even one drink increases the risk of a crash while driving a motor vehicle.” The FHP also noted that, “The "Designated Driver" is NOT the person who has had the least amount to drink, it is the person who has had NOTHING to drink!”

The Florida Highway Patrol also offers a variety of recipes for non-alcoholic holiday drinks (click here for a list), and the following holiday driving safety tips:

• If you are impaired, find another way home. Use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member or use

public transportation.

• Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let them get behind the wheel. If you see an

impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone’s life, and inaction could cost a life.

The FHP also notes that you can use *FHP on your cellular phone to report impaired drivers.
