WLOX Editorial: Don't drink & drive

How many times do we have to tell you don't drink and drive? The answer may be 50 thousand. That's how many times WLOX and broadcasters across the nation will repeat that message by New Year's Day. WLOX is part of Project Road Block: local TV putting the brakes on drunk driving.

If you plan to celebrate the New Year with alcohol, fine, have a good time.But, don't ruin your new year and maybe that of others by being foolish enough to get behind the wheel after getting buzzed.

There are plenty of options. Have a designated driver, call a friend, get a cab, or just stay put. So how many times do we have to tell you? Enough times until no one drinks, then drives. Stay safe and have a Happy New Year.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
