Don't drink and drive this Labor Day weekend

As Louisville residents are gearing up for the upcoming Labor Day weekend, it is important to remember to drive safely on the roads. Labor Day is a time for get-togethers with family and friends, barbecues, boating and blowing off a little steam at the summer season's unofficial end.

But it is also a time when many people consume alcohol. Whether it's chugging down some cold brews at a barbecue or sipping a few mixed drinks in the clubhouse after a round of golf, alcohol features into many Louisville residents' holiday celebrations.

There's nothing wrong with enjoying a convivial drink with friends or family. The problem arises when those who imbibe make the poor decision to drive after drinking. That lapse of judgment can result in catastrophic injuries, legal woes and even death — your own or the innocent lives ended due to your poor decisions.

We encourage all Louisville residents and visitors to enjoy their Labor Day weekend responsibly. Take advantage of the many options available to arrive home safely and without incident. Arrange for a Lyft or Uber driver to ferry you safely home or catch a ride with TARC. Alternatively, call a taxi or plan ahead to have a sober designated driver ensure your safe passage home.

The last thing that you need to worry about while recuperating from injuries suffered in an auto accident is handling the details of a personal injury claim. If you wind up injured in an accident with a negligent drunk driver, we can help you pursue a claim for damages against that liable driver's insurance company.
