On 2 KASA This Morning

Tonight is the night that we transition into a new year and there are going to be a number of celebrations happening around town. If you don’t have something already lined up, we have you covered. David Romero is live in Nob Hill withsome of the folks who have organized tonight’s good time.

The morning of New Year’s Day just after midnight is the deadliest time for drunken driving crashes nationally and in New Mexico. The group Mothers Against Drunk Driving wants people to be safe in the new year and not get behind the wheel after drinking. MADD’s New Mexico Executive Director Ben Lewinger joins us this morning to talk about ways to keep yourself and others safe.

New Year’s Eve is all about the celebrations, and if you don’t have plans yet, now is your chance to see what’s happening in Albuquerque tonight. Aileen O’Catherine of AlbuquerqueAbout.com joins us with some great ideas.

Earlier in the show Ben Lewinger with mothers against drunk driving briefly talked about safe ride services offered here in New Mexico. It’s a convenient way to get you home safely this New Year’s Eve. For more on the Tipsy Tow service we visit with Sarah Schimmer, AAA Texas/New Mexico spokeswoman.  (AAA New Mexico Tipsy Tow: Free Towing Service, 6 Tonight – 11:59PM Tomorrow, Free up to 10-Miles, Call 1 (800) AAA-HELP.)

Feel like laughing tonight while doing good for the New Mexico’s Children’s Hospital? If so, producer Ronn Perea and headliner Jerry Winn suggest you check out tonight’s “Xtreme Komedy” comedy show.

Why wait until midnight to get excited about the new year? Head on over to the Downs Racetrack and Casino today for Noon Year’s Eve. Here to tell us more is Brian Roybal, director of marketing at the Downs.

To help fight drunken driving in New Mexico there’s the ENDWI app. Here to tell us more about it is Robert Archuleta, director of the traffic safety division for the New Mexico Department of Transportation.

Tomorrow on 2 KASA This Morning we’ll be celebrating the New Year.
