Be mindful of criminal hot spots, where to go and where to stay away from, and your alcohol intake.
We all know accidents happen, maybe you’ve never done this before. Taking your significant other out on a date requires attentiveness. If you and your partner decide to indulge in some Valentine’s Day specials during happy hour, make sure to sober up before driving back to your place (or your valentine’s place) since car accidents spike during the holidays. Moreover, Valentine’s Day sees an increase in violent crimes, making this special occasion a day to stay on top of things.
In addition to sober driving, zero distractions should occur while you and your valentine are on the road. Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous due to the impact being twice as forceful with the main cause being distracted driving. Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love, but should not be a reason for ignorance. Stay safe!
