FDOT and traffic safety partners encourage responsible driving and celebrating safely. Be Responsible and Do Not Drink and Drive.
Throughout this time of year there are many celebrations, family gatherings, festivals, football pre-game tailgating and holiday parties. They are all best enjoyed when we celebrate responsibly. Please always drive safe and sober.
Every single injury and death caused by drunk drivers is totally preventable. Unfortunately, drunk drivers caused over 30 percent of traffic fatalities in Florida last year. Please be extra careful, especially during the holidays when record numbers are on the road.
Recipes for the Road was started to help reduce drinking and driving, offering a great collection of non-alcoholic drink recipes.
Please feel free to share and enjoy these mocktails, food recipes, safety activity games and traffic safety tips at http://trafficsafetyteam.org.
Also, WJXT, Channel 4 in Jacksonville hosted FDOT to highlight driver safety programs in an effort to help keep us safe on the roadways. Why not check it out at http://www.news4jax.com/video/new-years-eve-safety.
Also, in case you didn’t see the highlights recently at the I-95 Welcome Center to emphasize Celebrate Safely here is a link to a fun time we had. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH6h9zkEkes&feature=youtu.be&a
Let’s be safe out there and enjoy a safe, rewarding New Year!
