CARLE PLACE, NY. (CBSNewYork/AP) – There are efforts across New York State to crack down on drunk driving over the Thanksgiving long weekend.
Brian Rosenberg, a Carle Place nightclub owner and president of Restaurants Against Drunk Driving, is among those urging people not to drink and drive on this biggest party night of the year.
“Everyone thinks New Year’s Eve is the biggest night of the year. It is not. Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest night of the year,” Rosenberg told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. “The reason being is it is the one holiday where everybody is off the next day and it’s not a religious holiday, so it’s not like you have to go to temple or you have to go to church or you have to be up early in the morning.”
