Go home by light rail, tow truck or taxi, just don't drive home drunk tonight.
"This New Year, resolve to make a difference and save lives," said California Highway Patrol Commissioner Joe Farrow, who will have extra officers on the road tonight. "By removing impaired drivers from our roadways, this tragic loss of life can be greatly reduced."
The CHP encourages anyone who sees a suspected impaired driver on the road to call 911. Be prepared to provide a description of the vehicle, perhaps a license plate number, the location and direction of travel.
To avoid being one of those drunken drivers nabbed by law enforcement, designate a sober driver or take one of several different modes of safe travel:
AAA Northern California is again offering its "Tipsy Tow Program" to motorists who consume alcohol.
AAA offers a free tow of up to 10 miles tonight. The service will provide a one-way ride for the driver and vehicle to the driver's home. If there are additional passengers who need a ride, they will be taken to the driver's home as long is there is room in the tow truck.
AAA members and non-members can call (800) 222-4357 for the service.
