Many people will be drinking alcohol while ringing in the New Year. Michigan based emergency doctor Brad Uren says he's seen the results of drunk driving first hand.
“There's really no safe amount of alcohol that you can consume and get behind the wheel. Every drink that you have makes you just a little more likely to have an accident. We've established a legal guideline, but the medical truth is that any amount of drinking can put you at a higher risk.”
The Michigan State Police advise having a plan in place and utilizing a cab or designated driver if you plan on drinking this new years eve.
