If you plan to celebrate the New Year, remember to enjoy the holiday safely. The Eugene Police Department advises people to plan ahead by always having a designated driver.

Lieutenant Scott Fellman says people shouldn’t take any chances by driving under the influence on New Year’s.

Fellman: “New Year’s Eve we’ll definitely have extra officers out doing enforcement because that’s always a holiday we watch out for that type of behavior with a little bit of extra attention and we want to encourage people to plan ahead.”

Weather conditions are also a safety concern this time of year. Fellman says people should take extra time when driving to account for icy roadways and traffic.
