Did you know that drunk driving is highly increased during the holiday months?
“During the New Year’s and Christmas periods in 2018, there were 285 drunk-driving-related fatalities. These deaths are 100% preventable.”
NHTSA has announced a campaign over the holidays in order to decrease impaired driving and to spread the following messages:
“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and If You Feel Different, You Drive Different — Drive High Get a DUI. The campaign runs from December 11, 2019 through January 1, 2020 and aims to educate people about the dangers and consequences of driving drunk and high, and that law enforcement will be stepping up patrols to get impaired drivers off the roads.”
“Whether the drug is obtained legally or illegally, drug-impaired driving can be deadly for drivers, passengers, and others on the road.”
It is important to plan out the next few weeks of holidays and the celebrations that come with them.
Let’s help the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration spread the message to give the gift of sober driving.
