Bring In the New Year Stress Free – If You Imbibe Don’t DriveDecember 28th, 2011 by Thea Pueschel
My favorite News Year Eve activity is to do nothing. Staying home and relaxing. Living in a large metropolitan area that is car-centric just motivates the home-bug in me to stay put and allow the holiday to pass easily and gracefully into the next year. Not dealing with the headache of parking, aggressive drivers, drunken pedestrians wandering out in front of moving vehicles, traffic creeping toward check points and swerving drivers. For me, this is the most effective way to avoid the agitation/stress that I have experienced in New Years passed.
Guaranteed stress/anxiety reducer… celebrating responsibly. Let us say that you are one of the souls filled with merriment and New Years curiosity and wish to go out into the hustling/bustling world. Perhaps the desire to imbibe the sweet elixirs of social lubrication is within you. I suggest a designated driver or if everyone in your party wishes to engage in this yearly celebration of imbibing, the MTA is offering free rides from 9pm-2am on both bus lines and rail. Should you find yourself intoxicated and with the keys of your car in hand AAA is also providing free tows within 7 miles of pick up. Callers simply dial 800-400-4 AAA and tell the operator, “I need a Tipsy Tow.” This service runs from 6pm-6am starting December 31st (this service will only get the driver home, no passengers). If you are host to an awesome party and notice that a drunken attendee has the intention to drive, take the keys and call AAA.
Ring in the New Year without stress, by choosing an effective and safe means of transportation while celebrating. I guarantee waiting for a free AAA tow, will be way less stressful than one offered by the LAPD ($12,000).
