Many people are eager to put 2021 behind them and celebrate the arrival of 2022, but this year’s celebrations may look a little different than last year’s. Although COVID is still a threat to many people in Tennessee, there will likely be more gatherings at homes, restaurants, and bars than last year. That means there’s a greater likelihood of buzzed and drunk drivers on Nashville’s streets.

Drunk driving is one of the biggest risk factors for fatal crashes both for intoxicated drivers and the people they collide with. Keep these tips in mind if you’re planning on being out and about this New Year’s Eve:

If you plan on drinking, get a sober ride home. Whether it’s appointing a designated driver, calling a cab, or using a rideshare app, there are plenty of ways to ensure you get home safely.

The later you stay out on New Year’s Eve and into New Year’s Day, the more likely you are to encounter drunk drivers. If you stay out past midnight, plan to get home soon after the clock strikes midnight.

Even if you’re 100% sober, there’s a good chance some of the drivers around you aren’t. Be cautious and drive as though the people around you don’t see your vehicle.

No one plans on spending New Year’s Day in the hospital, but it will be a reality for many drivers in Tennessee. If it happens to you after a crash that wasn’t your fault, Ponce Law is here to help. Contact our Nashville auto accident lawyers for a free consultation.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
