WDAM Viewpoint- Have a safe New Year

Posted: Updated:

Today's viewpoint is a reminder to all who will celebrate the arrival of the New Year to do so responsibly. Please be safe and never get behind the wheel after drinking.

It seems so elementary, but every year we are reminded of the staggering statistics. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on average 28 people die each day as a result of a drunk driver crash.

We applaud Representative Toby Barker, Hattiesburg Convention Commission Director Rick Taylor and local businesses for offering a free trolley shuttle which will operate in Hattiesburg's downtown, the Avenues and Midtown tomorrow night from 8pm until 2am.

So remember to be smart and make good choices so we can all enter the New Year safe and sound.
