C.A.R.E Life Saver Weekend 12/16 - 12/18/2016

As the winter holiday months approach, festivities and parties can have a significant impact on our roadways in particular with regard to people driving under the influence. As such, the New Hampshire State Police will be out in force to ensure safe travel during this time in an effort to reduce traffic collisions and the injuries and deaths that can result. We want everyone to understand that saving lives on New Hampshire roadways is our top priority and we need everyone's help. This is a great time to remind drivers to be responsible motorists.

Please:

Plan Ahead:

Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin;
Before drinking, designate a sober driver and give that person your keys;
If you're impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation so you are sure to get home safely;
Use your Sober Rides program where available.

Don't drive distracted:

Put down the electronic devices;
When you're driving; just drive. Keep both hands on the wheel and both eyes on the road.

Slow Down:

Your family and friends would much rather have you arrive late then not at all.

Wear Your Seatbelt:

Please... Always wear your seatbelt; there are no good excuses.

Please be safe and remember: Whether you've had way too many or just one too many...it's too many. Don't get behind the wheel of a vehicle impaired; it's not worth the risk!

On behalf of Colonel Christopher Wagner and the men and women of the New Hampshire Sate Police:
Please Drive Sober, Don't Drive Distracted, Slow Down, and Wear Your Seatbelt
