December... National Drunk And Drugged Driving Prevention Month....






Today marks the beginning of National Drunk And Drugged Driving Prevention Month. If you would like more information please click on the following link...

Thousands of people die or are injured every year as a result of drunk or drug impaired driving. This is especially true during the holiday season where more people are likely to drive in an impaired state. The current statistics can be changed through commitment, education, and personal responsibility. Please join me in bringing awareness to this issue so we can all enjoy a safe and joyful holiday season.....

We can help raise public awareness by:
Placing buttons on our blogs as a reminder to every one that December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month. We can also write posts, share personal experiences, provide education links, and talk to our family and friends....

We can make responsible choices this holiday season. We can also encourage our family and friends to make responsible choices. We can remind them to appoint a designated driver or call a cab if they are going to a party and are planning to drink. Please do not allow family or friends to drink and drive. Ask for their keys if you know they are impaired. If you are giving a party where alcohol will be served, stop serving the alcohol before the party ends.....

Please remember...... "This holiday season if you catch a Buzz catch a Ride"
With warmest regards, Carol

I had no idea. You are full of info. My sister-in-law and niece were both killed by drunk drivers.

I have so many sad stories about people killed by drunk drivers. Just last year the daughter and son-in-law of our hospital's chief were killed two days before Christmas. The drunk driver had been to a holiday party and no one stopped him from driving home. Tragic.

I'm so glad you posted this reminder - so many people's lives have been tragically touched by drunk drivers. I had a friend who lost his mom, dad and sister - how can you overcome this grief brought on by a senseless selfish act of driving while intoxicated? I hope everyone who reads this thinks twice about having even a sip before going out and also to monitor the people around them who are drinking.

This is a hard topic for me to read about as I grew up with an alcoholic father. I have some bad memories, and therefore, I am a teetotaler.

What a nice reminder to all of us during this holiday season. Thanks.
