THE BRONX - New Year's Eve can be one of the most fun nights of the year, but it's also one of the most dangerous.

According to the non-profit organization Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), nearly 10,000 people are killed in drunken driving crashes each year. It says the risk jumps on holidays, including New Year's.

MADD is urging revelers to designate a sober driver, save the number of a local cab service or consider staying in a hotel. If planning a party, it says hosts should provide plenty of food so that no one drinks on an empty stomach and should make sure all guests have a safe way home.
