AAA urges motorist to be extra careful on New Year's
AAA recently issued a report urging motorists to be extra careful while driving on New Year's Day as it ranks as the most deadly day for alcohol-related fatalities. In addition, AAA announced its support for ignition interlock devices for convicted drunk drivers, while offering safety advice for holiday party goers.
Robert Darblenet, .AAA president and CEO, said AAA is not alone in its concern about impaired driving.
"I commend AAA for stepping up for safety," said NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman . "Technologies, such as ignition interlocks, will reduce alcohol-related crashes on our nation's roadways. We look forward to working alongside AAA and its clubs to eliminate the nation's top killer on our roadways – impaired driving."
Any potential car owners placing safety as the top factor on their list should consider a Subaru as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently named all the automaker's models as Top Safety Picks. New car owners also might want to equip their newly purchased vehicles with HuskyLiners® vehicle floor mats, to keep their car's interior looking as clean as the day it pulled of the lot.
The IIHS gave the new Top Safety Pick+ award to the Subaru Legacy and Outback.
