SACRAMENTO, CALIF., Dec. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- It's that time of year again – time when millions of Californians resolve to eat better, start exercising, and accomplish new goals. Just in time for New Year's celebrations and personal promises, the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) is encouraging drivers to adopt a new list of resolutions to keep our roadways safe in 2014 and beyond.
"When drivers resolve to drive sober, buckle up and turn off their cell phones they improve not only their own lives but the lives of every other driver on California's roads," said OTS Acting Director Russia Chavis. "Review our list of common sense resolutions and commit to a safer 2014 and beyond."
These tips can not only save lives, but prevent unnecessary tragedy for everyone. Resolutions often only pertain to the person making them, but these are significant because they have the potential to affect family, friends, and every driver or passenger who shares the road with you at any given time.
If you plan on ringing in the New Year with alcohol, remember to designate a sober driver. You can reward them for being your sober driver by treating them to a free, non-alcoholic DDrink or other sponsored perks from one of the DDVIP partner bars. To find the DDVIP establishment nearest you, visit www.DDVIPCA.com and enter your zip code for a list of establishments and DDVIP specials in your area.
The Office of Traffic Safety is providing a list of common sense resolutions for a safe 2014 and beyond. Feel free to add some of your own and be sure to share them with family, friends and coworkers:
