As millions of Americans gear up to travel home and spend time with their family and friends this Thanksgiving, the NJ car accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka would like to remind people across the country: “Make It to the Table: Don’t Drink and Drive this Thanksgiving Eve.”
The Wednesday night prior to Thanksgiving is what most people refer to as “Thanksgiving Eve.” It is the most popular drinking night of the entire year as bars are filled to capacity nationwide. From 2012 to 2016, there were more than 800 fatalities due to alcohol-impaired-driving crashes throughout the Thanksgiving holiday period from 6:00 pm on Wednesday to 5:59 am on Monday, designating it as the most deadly holiday when it comes to the roads.
Here at the Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka, P.C., we are partnered with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to carry out a social media campaign entitled, “Make It to the Table: Don’t Drink and Drive this Thanksgiving Eve.”
On the day before Thanksgiving, Nov. 22, all of our social media outlets will be dedicated to exclusively sharing content promoting how critical it is that we all refrain from drinking and driving while planning a safe trip home ahead of time. We will use all types of social media to post using hashtags like #buzzeddriving and #designateddriver to spread this vital message this holiday season.
At the Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka, P.C., we are urging people everywhere, including the media, to assist us in spreading this crucial message so as many people as possible make it to their Thanksgiving table safe and sound.
We encourage you not to wait until the last minute to plan your ride. You have a variety of options to travel safely.
- Decide on a designated (sober) driver
- Use public transportation (bus, train, etc.)
- Schedule a taxi service
- Use a ridesharing service like Uber or Lyft
