New Years Eve Safety

The Frankfort Police Department would like to wish everyone a happy and safe New Year. Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind:

· If you plan on drinking, don’t drive! Protect yourself by having a designated driver. You could also utilize a taxi service or a service like Uber or Lyft to make sure you get home safely.
· If going out, bring only what you need in your wallet for that evening; such as a driver’s license, money, and one credit card. Don’t bring multiples cards, gift cards, or other identification cards.
· Auto accidents due to alcohol consumption are highest between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m., so avoid being on the road at those times if possible and never drink and drive.
· If you are driving, make sure that you park in a well-lit area, that you lock your vehicle’s doors, remove keys/fobs, and do not leave valuables in plain view.
· Never leave drinks unattended and use a buddy system to make sure that all members of your party leave safely.
· When driving watch out for intoxicated walkers who may cross the street without regard for traffic signals or crosswalks.

We look forward to serving you in the New Year- The Frankfort Police Department
