2021 is finally over, and it’s time to celebrate! Are you planning to attend a year-end party near Elizabethtown this month on Dec. 31? Then make sure you follow these safe driving tips for traveling to and from your New Year’s Eve party.
Don’t drink and drive
This is an obvious rule for safe driving on the biggest party night of the year, but unfortunately, it’s a rule that many drivers refuse to follow. If you plan on drinking at a party, have a designated driver accompany you or make plans for a rideshare driver to bring you home.
Don’t start partying until you actually arrive at the venue. Refrain from blaring party music, dancing, flashing strobe lights, or doing anything else irresponsible in the car. Also set expectations with your passengers so they don’t get rowdy and distract you. Most important of all, don’t text and drive!
Leave your car somewhere secure
The night of New Year’s Eve has a history of being one of the biggest times for car break-ins and thefts throughout the year. Make sure you aren’t a victim to vandalism or vehicle theft. If you’re going somewhere that doesn’t have secure, private parking, you may want to consider a rideshare so you don’t have to leave your beloved Honda exposed.
Ring in 2022 safely with these safe driving tips, and then bring your car to Hardin County Honda for a new-year service inspection.
