Help Stop Buzzed Driving!

Wednesday, September 01, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Did you know that in 2008, just over the Labor Day holiday weekend, 194 people were killed in crashes involving an impaired driver?

This Labor Day, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council are trying to remind people to plan ahead and designate a sober driver for any Labor Day celebration because "Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving."

One of the most important things you can do before you go out is to designate a sober driver. If you're throwing a party, make sure to offer up non-alcoholic drinks for the sober drivers in your group. Global Influence have compiled a Facebook tab with 50 non-alcoholic party drink recipes right here.

Another great resource is the new Facebook tab with a nationwide list of alternative ride programs.   

Last but not least, check out the Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving website. Here you can sign a pledge not to drink and drive, play "Spot the Difference," an  interactive game that simulates the effects of buzzed driving , and watch a real-life video about how buzzed driving changed one woman's life. 

This Labor Day, let's work together to put an end to buzzed driving. Don't ruin the end of your summer with a drunk driving arrest. Designate a sober driver before celebrating. Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving.

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I am sharing this timely information due to my involvement with Global Influence, and because I believe it is important.
