The holiday season is winding down, but there’s still one major holiday left to celebrate: New Year’s Eve! It’s no surprise that most of us are ready to put 2020 in the rearview mirror, but it’s important to bid adieu to the year and ring in 2021 as safely as possible. Unfortunately, New Year’s Eve is one of the most dangerous holidays of the year, as it’s a holiday that’s practically synonymous with alcohol consumption.
You can reduce your risks while driving this New Year’s Eve by keeping these tips in mind:
Don’t drive after drinking—Remember that even buzzed driving is considered drunk driving. It’s possible to stay under the legal limit of 0.08% BAC and still be at a higher risk of a serious crash. That’s because even small amounts of alcohol can impair your driving abilities.
Avoid distractions—Map your route to and from your destination in advance so you aren’t tempted to use your phone while driving. In addition, make phone calls and send text messages before and after you drive—never during.
Get home before midnight—The safest place to celebrate the calendar turning over to Jan. 1 is your own home. If you celebrate elsewhere and have to drive home, you’ll be on the road at the same time as other drivers also heading home—and many of them may be intoxicated!
As a Non-Tennessee resident, I selected Ponce Law after reading the reviews. You guys were spot on. This firm has some of the nicest, knowledgeable and easiest lawyers and staff to work with. I was amazed and very pleased with their diligence and work ethic! Even if I was worried about something and called for advice, they were quick to respond and answered my questions. I will highly recommend this firm.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

Have you ever been caught between a Hyundai and a hard place? I have, Ponce Law was a call away and helped me through the entire process. Very friendly staff who explained every step of the process to me and made sure I understood what was going on. When I got injured I didn't know what to do but I'm glad I put in a call to Ponce Law.

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.
