Happy New Year!

Safety first this New Years!  Please do not risk a drunk driving arrest on New Year’s Eve.  Remember before you start partying, choose a designated driver or take mass transit, a taxicab, or ask a sober friend to drive you home.  There are a number of programs to help prevent drunk driving and provide a safe ride home. Here is a list of a few programs:

Sober Ride - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has created a listing of sober/safe ride programs across the country. Find one in your area, and save the number in your cell phone so you always have it on you. (http://duijusticelink.aaa.com/for-the-public/aaas-role/public-education/sober-ride)

National Directory of Designated Driver Services - Tools to Prevent Drunk Driving (


AAA Tipsy Tow at 1-800-222-4537 (1-800-AAA-Help).  The call desk will send a tow truck to your location and drive you, one additional passenger, and your car home, one-way.  (AAA-tipsy-tow-how-get-free-ride-home-new-years-eve)

Remember If you are feeling buzzed, you probably are over the 0.08 (alcohol concentration) limit and should not drive.  Enjoy your time as you welcome the New Years and be safe!

Give us a call and we will go check out some open houses this weekend or browse new listings!  It is always a good time to buy a house.  Remember Chris Harrison at Exit Realty Horizons for all your Las Cruces real estate needs.
