In 2008, nearly 12,000 people in the U.S. were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes – and during the periods around Christmas and New Year’s, this number was particularly high, with 316 people killed in alchol-impaired driving crashes. You can’t help but wonder if lives could have been saved if people thought twice before getting behind the wheel. This New Year’s Eve it’s important that drivers be reminded about the dangers of buzzed driving. Who knows…it could save a life.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) and the Ad Council are asking everyone to drive smart this New Year’s Eve and to pledge not to drive buzzed.
While at New Year’s events, it’s easy to lose track of a drink here or there – but this can be fatal. This New Year’s Eve, keep you and your family safe by spreading this message.
Have a safe and happy New Year, and remember that buzzed driving IS drunk driving.
