DON'T DRIVE HOME DRUNK...CALL FOR A TOW

2015-1000-ffccccccTransparent-3333-0.20.3-1.pngThe Northwest Florida Daily News reports that lawmen across the Emerald Coast are encouraging people to make safe choices when ringing in the new year. The Walton County Sheriff's Office announced recently it is teaming up with Grayton Beer and Sunshine Shuttle and Limousine to encourage people not to drive drunk on New Year's Eve. "Safety is a must when we celebrate the New Year," said Walton County Sheriff's Lt. Doc Savage. "More people will be driving under the influence on this particular night, so avoid a potentially dangerous accident by staying off the road. "If you do drink, make sure you have a plan in place to get home safely," he continued. "Otherwise, be alert, drive defensively and buckle up."

INTERSTATE 10 (I-10) IS GETTING SMARTER

law_office_of_john_freeman_-_1387491.txtThe Northwest Florida Daily News reports that there is new construction on the state's Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) on Interstate 10 in Okaloosa and Walton counties Monday through Wednesday which will cause lane closures. State DOT Spokesman said motorists will see alternating closures affecting both eastbound and westbound traffic. The ITS includes 183 traffic cameras, 17 overhead digital message signs, 135 microwave vehicle detectors, 40 travel time sensors, three road and weather information sensors and eight highway advisory radios.

CAR SEATS AND BOOSTERS REQUIRED IN FLORIDA

Booster-1000-ffccccccWhite-3333-0.20.3-1.pngFinally, children in Florida will be a little bit safer as they are transported on state roads. Beginning January 1 (Thursday), children ages 4 and 5 are required to sit in a child safety seat or a booster seat rather than only being buckled in a seat belt. According to the CDC, booster seat use reduces the risk for serious injury by 45 percent for children ages 4-8 years when compared with seat belt use alone. Child-safety advocates struggled for years to achieve this tightening of the law, which has been one of the weakest nationwide. Until state lawmakers approved the tougher requirement, Florida and South Dakota were the only states that didn't require booster seats for children after they turned 3.
