Huntsville Police want you to have a happy and safe New Year, and they’ll be out tonight checking for impaired drivers, speeders, and others breaking the law.
According to HPD, the DUI Task Force will be on the roads enforcing DUI and other traffic laws such as seatbelt and speeding violations. If you suspect another driver to be DUI, please call HPD and be ready to give vehicle and tag information and location.
If you are planning to drink alcohol, please have a designated driver. If you don’t have one, call for a sober ride home.
Other things you need to know: celebratory gunfire in the city limits is illegal. So is shooting fireworks. Both of these are also dangerous and can take officers away from emergency calls.
Be smart. Don’t start 2019 as a statistic.
