The Holiday Season is a joyous time to celebrate, appreciate what we have, and reconnect with family and old friends.
Going home for Holiday Break often means linking up with the high school crew and dabbling in one or two debaucherous nights out on the old stomping grounds. With one of the highest rates of impaired driving fatalities during the year, the time between Christmas and New Year’s Day means we need to be extra cautious – and responsible – while behind the wheel of a vehicle.
Identify a designated driver when you decide to drink.
This simple display of responsibility can ensure that you do not make a life-altering mistake. Not only can buzzed driving put you back roughly $10,000 in fines, legal fees, and increased insurance, but poor decision making can lead to motor vehicle accidents and fatalities. There’s no reason you can’t still turn up and have fun, but remember to be responsible in doing so.
Sign the pledge that you will not drive buzzed or intoxicated and learn more about the dangers associated with drunk driving.
