Stop Buzzed Driving!
Drinking and driving is never a good thing, no matter how much or little you have had to drink. Buzzed driving is drunk driving. In 2008, just over the Labor Day holiday weekend alone, 194 people were killed in crashes involving an impaired driver? That is a 194 mothers who have lost a child. Or many children who have lost a parent. These were people who were brothers, sisters, friends. All killed by an impaired driver.
This Labor Day, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council are trying to remind people to plan ahead and designate a sober driver for any Labor Day celebration because "Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving."
If you are going to drink, plan ahead and get a ride. Check out this cool facebook page that lists
sober/safe ride programs by state. Like it and share it with all your friends.
