Having a Superbowl Party?

Are You having a Superbowl Party? Are you rooting for the Colts ? or the Saints? Do You plan on Drinking ?

If So.... Please Be Safe !!!

buzzed driving campaign 2

When you're heading out to a party or hosting guests, remember to always plan ahead:

~Designate a sober driver or be prepared to find a safe ride home for your guests

~Be ready to take alternate transportation such as a bus or taxi. Have the phone number of a taxi service stored in your phone before you leave for the party.

~In 2008, 11,773 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes.

I'm sharing this news from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Ad Council as they continue their efforts with the "Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving" PSA campaign. Buzzed drivers are those who drink and drive, but do not consider themselves a hazard on the roadway because "only a few" drinks are consumed. The campaign hopes to educate people that consuming even one drink too many can impair driving and remember that "Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving." So even if you are planning on staying home Super Bowl weekend, please remind your loved ones that buzzed driving IS drunk driving.

To learn more about the impact buzzed driving can have on a life, please watch this important video about the financial and personal repercussions of getting a DUI:

Remember: Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving. Plan ahead and ask your loved ones to do the same.
