• Be ready to take ALTERNATE transportation such as a bus or taxi. Have the phone number of a taxi service stored in your phone before you leave for the party.
Even if you will not be celebrating this St. Patrick’s Day, keep in mind that in 2009, 1,119 occupants of other vehicles were killed in crashes involving alcohol-impaired drivers, so pay attention to others on the road. And remember, you don’t have to be “falling down drunk” to be too impaired to drive safely. Even a few drinks can impair driving…and a buzzed driving crash has the same consequences as a drunk driving crash.
NHTSA needs your help in keeping the roads safe for everyone this St. Patrick’s Day by spreading the word that buzzed driving IS drunk driving… SO post it, tweet it, or make it your status, but let everyone know!!!!
BUZZED DRIVING IS DRUNK DRIVING!!
Remember: Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving. Don’t rely on dumb luck this St. Patrick’s Day. Plan ahead and ask your loved ones to do the same.
Disclosure: I was given the opportunity to spread the word about the Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving Campaign through the Global Influence Network. I received campaign information for posting purposes only. I was not compensated to write this post. This is Life Books & Loves personal opinion.
