BuZZeD DrivinG- St Patty's Day

So I don't have to lecture you on how dangerous it is to drink and drive, but I will tell you to drink responsibly. In a couple of days, some of us will be drinking beers, green beers. Celebrating St Patty's Day.

Did you know that in 2008, 1,179 people in other vehicles were killed in crashes involving alcohol-impaired drivers.

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:

Take the pledge today. I just did. It is our responsibility to make these choices before it is too late. There are so many things that can go wrong when you are impaired. Be safe on the streets. Protect your loved ones, and ask them not to drink and drive as well. We all can make a difference, if we all just spread the word. Be a designated driver, get a cab, call a friend, but don't get on the streets.

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

I think you should not drink and drive not only for yourself but for other people as well. You may have some friends or loved ones in the car with you and that can give you much guilt.
