With New Year's Eve around the corner you need to have a plan before you go out and ring and ring in the new year. Every year, thousands of people die in drunk driving related crashes. But it doesn't have to be that way, these deaths are preventable.

This year WENY News is proud to support "Project Roadblock" -- a special initiative from the Television Bureau of Advertising that promotes the "Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving" public service advertising campaign from the Ad Council and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Stay safe out there -- if you plan to drink, make a plan to get home safely -- and remember: buzzed driving is drunk driving.
