How many times have we heard stories about the dangers of New Years Eve drinking? While I have never understood the whole New Years Eve “thing,” I recognize that many view it as an opportunity to “forget the negatives of the past year and plan for success in the new one.” How better to forget than with a few stiff ones?
Knowing that many will see no problem getting in a car after an evening’s frivolity tends to keep the rest of us off the streets. Not all of us however.
According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), many will stumble back to their car after midnight to find it missing, as New Year’s Day is the worst day of the year for auto thefts. The NICB says, “While Americans are enjoying the holidays and most have time off from work, we need to remember that holidays are just another day at the shop for vehicle thieves.”
While I plan to stay home tonight and keep an eye on my car, I wish all of you a safe and happy New Year.
