Designate Before You Celebrate This Holiday Season

If you are going out to celebrate the holidays and there is even a possibility that you may drink alcohol, you need to plan for a safe ride home. With just a few drinks you could become too impaired to safely drive. If you choose a designated sober driver before you drink, you can have a good time and get home safely. Designate BEFORE You Celebrate! Happy Holidays!

As we prepare for holiday festivities with our family and friends, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration wants to remind all drivers about the dangers of buzzed driving. The holidays are known for being merry and bright, but they’re also known for being the deadliest season when it comes to buzzed driving. Every holiday season, lives are lost due to drunk drivers. If you plan on drinking, plan on NOT driving.

Drug-impaired driving is a problem on America’s highways. Like drunk driving, drugged driving is impaired driving, which means it is dangerous and illegal in all 50 States, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C. Whether the drug is obtained legally or illegally, driving while impaired poses a threat to the driver, the vehicle passengers, and to other road users.
