Celebrate safely this holiday season.
Impaired driving includes distracted driving, drugged driving, and drunk driving. Give yourself and your loved ones the gift of responsibility this holiday season. Before you start drinking, designate your sober driver or plan a safe ride home such as Uber or Lyft. If you will not be drinking, offer to be a sober driver for others who will be.
Traffic fatalities that involve impaired drivers increase significantly during the Christmas and New Year’s holiday periods.
The holidays are known for being merry and bright, but they’re also known for being the deadliest season when it comes to drunk driving. Every holiday season, lives are lost due to drunk drivers. In an average year, 30 million Americans drive drunk, and 10 million Americans drive impaired by illicit drugs.
If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel. If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone’s life, and inaction could cost a life.
