 Happy (Safe) New Year's Eve! Family Friendly Ways to Celebrate 2022Celebrating New Year’s Eve 2022 — Safely

It doesn’t matter if you are 3 or 103 years old, there are plenty of ways to celebrate a happy and safe New Year’s Eve 2022 throughout California.

Parents can take the kids to a local children’s museum for a pretend countdown at noon. Or the whole family can visit an amusement park for fireworks, rides and other special events. Finally, there’s always a traditional New Year’s Eve party where you can dance the night away and ring in the new year with friends at a party.

Johnson Attorneys Group hopes the 2022 is filled with happiness, health and prosperity. We want to remind you that the roads and freeways are especially dangerous on New Years Eve, but you can always take precautions to minimize this. If you have plans that require driving on the freeway, consider leaving a few hours earlier and make your way there when traffic is light. There may be something you can do in the area close to the event to avoid major traffic jams. If you are going to a friend’s party, ask if they need help and arrive early. It also may make parking easier than if you come later. Also, seat belts do save lives so always make sure you are buckled up.

Another tip is to avoid driving in the fast lane where drivers are at risk of being a victim of a head-on or wrong-way collision. Look left and right as you enter an intersection when the light turns green because drivers often run through the red light on New Year’s eve.  Drunk and drugged driving are a reality so it helps to avoid driving late at night or in the early morning hours. However, there are often DUI drivers at all times of the day so be aware of other motorists around you.
