Tomorrow, Thanksgiving Eve, is the the number one night of the year for people to go out and drink. It’s also the most popular night to drink and drive. Many townships will have do everything they can to curb the amount of drunk drivers on the road this Wednesday night including sobriety checkpoints and random late night stops.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the police officials around New Jersey are urging people to tie a red ribbon on their cars — reminding others about the dangers of drinking and driving
MADD is also the most notable backer of a bill that the governor is expected to sign into law this week that would seek a warrant to have a blood sample taken, measuring the blood alcohol content level of someone who refuses a breathalyzer test.
Others believe even more should be done like, more random sobriety check points, ability to pull someone over for no seatbelt and even requiring interlock ignitions so people would have to blow into BAC recording devices before their car would start.
