Ring in New Year safely
Thankfully, Lincoln Parish hasn’t seen a fatal vehicle accident caused by a drunk driver recently. However, multiple DWI arrests are made every day. It’s only a matter of time before our community experiences a tragic wreck.
Drunk driving is a persistent problem in Louisiana and across the nation that contributed to the loss of nearly 450 lives in our state last year and more than 17,000 nationwide, according to the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
Especially during the holidays, when people are ready to cut loose, it can be challenging to keep safety at top of mind.
