If you're looking to go out and toast the New Year by getting toasted, there are several ways for you to avoid driving under the influence and receiving a (very expensive DUI).
L.A.'s metro system will be running free buses and trains from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. on New Year's Eve, and the gates to the subway system will remain open.
Of course, you could always go old school and hail a taxi, or just make sure you download and install the Uber or Lyft apps. Triple A is also offering their annual deal to tow your car home if you're too drunk to drive as part of their annual 'Holiday Safe Ride Program.' If you need a safe ride home, call 1-800-AAA-HELP.
Of course, the best way to avoid that DUI? Have a party at home and ring in the New Year by watching a live-stream of the ball drop from home.
The California Highway Patrol is also reminding people that smoking weed and driving high also counts as being under the influence.
