Arlington Police and Taxi Companies alike are urging drivers to drive safely and responsibly, or take a taxi cab when necessary, this New Year’s Eve, according to NBC DFW. The holidays at this time of year can make for dangerous road conditions, including icy roads and intoxicated drivers. 2013 saw 14 deaths in 11 alcohol-related accidents within Arlington; to prevent accidents, police will be out in unusually high numbers to keep roads safe. Taxi companies are also urging those partaking in New Year’s Eve celebrations to call a taxi because cab fare is significantly cheaper than a DWI, and it can save lives. Additionally, AAA offers a program for drivers that allow them to receive a free ride and tow within 10 minutes of their pick-up location.

However, if you or someone you love are injured or killed in an intoxicated driving accident and you believe another person or party to be at fault, contact Haire Law for an evaluation of your case.
