Everyone knows the dangers involved with drunk driving. It is in the news often and police officers are always on the prowl for intoxicated drivers. Do yourself a favor: do not drive drunk! Keep yourself safe and smart by planning ahead. TV and radio ads have driven the point home that drunk driving is never worth the risk and can lead to arrest or worse. On average someone is killed by a drunk driver every 40 minutes in the US. Do not be the cause of such destruction.
This weekend when you are out having a good time be sure to keep in mind the following: 36 people die and almost 700 more are injured in vehicle crashes that involve drunk driving per day. Of these fatalities half are teenagers.
We all enjoy a good time but we must always remember to keep it safe when driving is involved. If you have been drinking, simply do not drive. Have a sober friend drive or simply phone a taxi cab, ride a bus or walk home. Approximately 30% of Americans will be involved with an alcohol related crash at some point in their lifetime. Why risk endangering yourself and others by driving home drunk. Be smart and don’t do it.
