Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving
A little buzzed from the Christmas party and think it is alright to drive? Well, its NOT! Last year, more than 250 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes during the Christmas and New Year's holiday period. Buzzed driving is drunk driving and it could drastically change your life as well as other's lives.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council are reminding everyone that the best way to stay safe is to plan ahead and designate a sober driver before you head out for your festivities. Here are some lists to help you keep your holidays safe. Make sure you look into them and plan accordingly.
• Designated Driver Drink List — One of the most important things you can do before going out is designate a sober driver. If you’re throwing a party, make sure to offer non-alcoholic drinks for the sober drivers. We’ve compiled a Facebook tab with 50 non-alcoholic party drink recipes.
• Alternative Ride Locator — We’ve created a Facebook tab with a list of nationwide alternative ride programs that can help keep your readers safe.
• Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving website — Your readers can sign a pledge not to drink and drive; play “Spot the Difference,” an interactive game that simulates the effects of buzzed driving; and watch a real-life video about how buzzed driving changed one woman’s life.
