ARDMORE, OK-  With New Years days away Oklahoma Highway Patrol and an Ardmore business owner are warning people to be responsible as you celebrate.

No matter how you plan on bringing in your new year OHP is asking you to be think smart so you don't end up in jail.

"well if you get stopped and you've been drinking and driving obviously you're going to go to jail" says OHP Lieutenant Allen Henry.

According to AAA (Triple A), New Years Eve and New Years day are two of the most dangerous days to.

"With New Years Eve and New Years day, typically what we run into is a lot of drinking and driving, it has gotten better over the years with the use of designated drivers and I would encourage if you partake of the spirits get a designated driver, just don't get out on the roadway" according to Henry.  

Main Street Wine Depot owner Jadean Fackrell agrees with OHP and has some more tips for those who might have a drink to usher in the New Year:

"First of all, they need to eat a good meal before they start drinking and they need to pace themselves, because its sure not fun to drink too much and get sick. Most importantly do not be on the highway driving.  Pace yourselves and don't over do it, because you will not have a good time and you can heart yourself or someone else" says Fackrell

At the Main Street Wine Depot, they are celebrating New Years early for your safety.

"We're going to open at 6 p-m but we're closing at 10 p-m because we want everyone to get home safely" said Jadean Fackrell.

NO MATTER YOUR NEW YEAR PLANS, THE BEST NEW YEARS DAY TO HAVE IS A SAFE ONE.
