Don't drive buzzed!!

Last year, more than 250 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes during the Christmas and New Year’s holiday periods.  Make sure that if you're at a work function, holiday party or at a drinking establishment and you're having a few drinks have a safe way to get home.  Don't get behind the wheel yourself putting yourself and others in danger.  Even if you're just a little buzzed you're still impaired and it's still considered drunk driving!

Designate a driver before even going out or there are other alternatives out there such as cabs, public transit or programs where a couple people are sent to pick you up in your vehicle and drive you home safely.  One such program I know about and have used is Operation Reindeer.  

Visit   where you can sign a pledge not to drink and watch a video of the effects of buzzed driving.

 Stay safe and have fun this holiday season!
