As of November 30th, there have been 204 DWI arrest on the Causeway Bridge this year.

Ringing in the New Year with friends and family is so much fun. Many of us will be attending parties. We usually think and plan for the party but not the ride home afterwards. Compared to an average night on the weekend, there are 71% more crashes with drugs or alcohol as a contributing factor between December 31st at 6pm and January 1st at 6am. In just that 12 hour period, alcohol and drug related car crashes skyrocket.

Don’t start 2019 with a bang from your airbag. If you are attending a party and have been drinking, please sleep there, take a taxi, call a friend, or use a ride-sharing service to get you home.
