Eugene Police Officer Offers Holiday Safety Tips
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.
