Drunk Driving & Domestic Violence Over Holidays


The days on the calendar are ticking off to the new year. This holiday season 33rd Street Bail Bonds wants you to be aware of the hazards of drunk driving and the continued presence of domestic violence that takes place in some families.

One of the most dangerous holidays for drunk driving is New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. There are more travelers on the road and more people who are imbibing in alcohol.

33rd Street Bail Bonds offers these tips on staying safe:

•Do not drink and drive
•Keep your distance from vehicles that seem to be driven by intoxicated drivers. These drivers may be swerving, drifting over the lines, not using their headlights, or straddling two lanes
•Have a designated driver
•Stay off the roads. Have a party at home or plan on sleep over at the location that you are partying at
•Use a taxi or ride share service to get home

While intoxicated drivers are an issue over the holidays, some people are also dealing with the ongoing issue of domestic violence. While financial pressures, more family togetherness, and higher stress levels might increase during the holidays, please be aware that domestic violence takes place all year long. Oftentimes, domestic violence cases are under reported during the holiday due to the thought of wanting to make a nice holiday for the children or because the victim can’t find time away from the abuser. Statistics show a rise in domestic violence victims seeking help after the holidays because of these factors. If you or a loved one is in this situation, please call the national domestic violence hotline at 1-800-799-7233 or visit online at http://www.thehotline.org/.
