Police throughout New Jersey plan on cracking down on Drunk Driving this holiday season as part of “Over the Limit, Under Arrest.” Through January 2, 2011, local authorities plan on raising awareness through advertisements, public speaking and having more police visibility to try and fight Drunk Driving during the most dangerous time on the roads.
Last year alone, 189 people were killed in New Jersey were killed as a result of alcohol related fatalities, 32% of the total fatalities in traffic accidents for the state. The following is advice from the Division of Highway Traffic Safety:
* If you’ve consumed alcohol, even just one drink, take mass transit, a taxi or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
* Report impaired drivers to law enforcement.In New Jersey, drivers may dial #77 to report a drunk or aggressive driver.
* If you’re intoxicated, and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member escort you safely to your doorstep.
* Always buckle up, every ride, regardless of your seating position in the vehicle.It’s the best defense against an impaired driver.

Lisa Robin Kelly, who played Eric Foreman’s older sister on ‘That 70’s Show’, plead guilty on DWI charges this past week in North Carolina.
Kelly, replaced after season five of the popular sitcom, was charged with DWI on August 21 after police pulled her over and suspected her of drinking while driving. She was arrested and apparently spent the night in jail.
It is that time of year! Companies are having Holiday parties to show their appreciation.
If you are in charge of throwing the party, show your employees and co-workers how much you care by offering Sober Sam, or least gift cards for everyone to use as they see fit. If you are planning on attending one and want to let loose and enjoy yourself worry-free, reserve your Sober Sam driver today.
All too often we put the emphasis on the livations and drinking at holiday parties to loosen up. Some times it turns out well and some not so well for many reasons. Let’s make sure that this year, if it does not turn out well its because of something silly and light hearted at the party not the ride home.
Secure a safe ride home by using Sober Sam. Your family and friends will surely appreciate your safe arrival home each and everytime. Make these holiday’s memorable for the right reasons and not the wrong ones.
GIFT CARDS are available at anytime for any denomination. These make great stocking stuffers or card inserts for the people you care about. Call for details or if you have any questions. THANK YOU all for your support and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and your loved ones!!
FINISH THIS STATEMENT!
You go out with friends and…..
A.) Drink and still drive home when you know its not the right thing to do.
B.) NOT drink as you watch your friends have a great time because you are the designated driver.
C.) Drink WORRY-FREE with everyone knowing you have a designated driver and a friend in Sober Sam
Which makes the most sense?
…REMEMBER- Our price ( as low as it is ) is per vehicle NOT per person. We will drop your friends off before you, in your vehicle after a night of drinking. NO EXTRA CHARGE! Split the cost and all get home safe!
GIFT CARDS are available at any denomination you choose! Thank you and have a merry and SAFE holiday!!
