In order to deter impaired driving, the North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program began to run their Booze It & Lose It campaign today through January 1, 2024.
All across North Carolina, there will be increased patrols and checkpoints to detect impaired drivers.
Last year, 471 people were fatally injured in alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents in North Carolina alone.
Enjoy the holidays and some yummy holiday spirits, but please utilize a designated driver, a taxi, Uber, or Lyft, in order to make sure not to turn a good time into a tragedy for yourself or others.
However, if you or someone you know receive a traffic ticket or any other criminal charge in New Hanover, Pender, or Brunswick Counties, or if you or someone you know get seriously injured in an accident at which they were not at fault, call Collins Law Firm at 910-793-9000 for a confidential consultation about what we can do to help you.
