NORTH CAROLINA (WECT) – If you plan to party with some adult beverages this holiday season, be sure you have a designated driver.
The holiday Booze it & Lose it campaign kicked off Friday and will continue through the remainder of the year.
Law enforcement officers will be in full force across North Carolina through January 2 to help keep the roads safe.
According to the NC DOT, there were more than 950 alcohol-related crashes in the state during the 2011 holiday campaign, resulting in 44 fatalities and 702 injuries.
"Make the responsible decision to designate a driver if you plan to drink this holiday season," said State Transportation Secretary Gene Conti. "The choice you make could save a life."
Do your part to be safe this holiday season.
