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 http://buzzeddriving.adcouncil.org/ 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!
