Drinking And Driving

Who’s at risk?

Even if you don’t drink and drive, you’re at risk from others who do. Alcohol is a factor in 40% of all motor vehicle fatalities, contributing to 17,013 deaths in 2003. Two out of every five people will be involved in an alcohol-related vehicle crash in their lifetime. Young people are particularly at risk. Every day, 13 people between the ages of 16 and 24 die in an alcohol-related crash.

Safety tips you can use:

  • It cannot be emphasized enough: If you are drinking, do not drive.
  • When dealing with alcohol, planning ahead is the best way to insure the safety of everyone involved.
  • Choose a designated driver. A designated driver is not someone who is the most sober; it’s someone who did not drink at all.
  • Strictly enforce a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to alcohol and the young drivers in your family.
  • Give them the guidance they need to deal with peer pressure and make wise choices.
  • Wear your seat belt. There is no better defense against drunk drivers.
