As you prepare for your New Year’s celebration while 2021 winds down and we think about ringing in 2022, Dr. Keren Gomez and her team want to remind everyone to stay safe while celebrating the holiday.
Those in the Miami-Dade area may remember some of the car accidents reported from New Year’s Eve last year—one of which involved a teenager driving over 110 miles per hour and another involving students at Florida International University. Each of these resulted in severe injuries.
Holiday Car Accidents Can Be Disastrous
The aftermath of car accidents around New Year’s Eve and the day after can have devastating effects. Roads around a city like Miami can make for a very risky place—especially between the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on December 31st and from midnight to 3:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day.
Despite all the warnings and awareness, there will be drivers making poor decisions this holiday season. Fortunately, there will also be an increased presence of law enforcement working to help ensure everyone’s safety.
All this work seems to be doing the trick as recent years have seen declines in the number of arrests for DUI and reckless driving according to reports from Miami-Dade police. These gains in public safety are attributed to enhanced education and enforcement—with the rise of ridesharing—throughout the area.
