Police remind everyone to drive safe this New Year's

New Year's Eve is one of the deadliest nights on the roads.  The St. Joe County Drunk Driving Task Force is out in full force tonight.

Make sure to pick a designated driver before you start drinking.  If it's too late for that tonight, make sure to call a cab.

"It's cheaper to pay for cab fare than it is to bond out of jail after being arrested for drunk driving," says Tim Williams with the Mishawaka Police Department.  "The worst part of it, if you get involved in a fatal crash, and you end up not just ruining your life but the lives of many others."

The task force is working overtime hours to keep the roads safe thanks to a grant from the Governor's Council.
