The Salt Lake City Police Department wishes Salt Lake residents and visitors a happy New Year and provides the following tips for a safe celebration:
Plan ahead. Make sure you have a safe way home before celebrating.
If you observe a drunk driver, don’t hesitate – call 911.
If you see someone about to drive drunk, try to assist them by making other arrangements.
If you go out to celebrate, designate an alcohol-free driver and ensure that person remains totally alcohol-free.
For those who will be including alcohol in their New Year’s Eve celebrations and intend to drive, SLCPD asks that you plan now to avoid a potentially tragic situation, a costly ticket, jail booking, and loss of driving privileges.
SLCPD’s Motor Squad will be out in force this holiday weekend.
