12-31-13 new year's eve travel

New Year’s Eve is a big night for partying, and a lot of people will be on the roads. Wisconsin State Patrol Sergeant Greg Jenswold says it’s been said many times before, but it’s still true: do not get behind the wheel if you’ve had too much to drink. 
Sergeant Jenswold says depending on the weather, New Year’s Eve will have about as many crashes as a typical Packers football Sunday. He says the state Transportation Department has tried to get out the message about the dangers of drinking and driving through numerous TV ads. 
Sergeant Jenswold says if you see a driver weaving, stay away and call 9-1-1. Your call will be sent to the nearest county sheriff’s office no matter where you are, and law enforcement personnel will be dispatched to the scene.  He also has advice if you get into a crash: unless it is on fire, stay in your car. Recently, video of a huge chain-reaction multiple-fatality accident on Highway 41/45 near Germantown went viral.
