According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s is the deadliest for drunk driving accidents. 973 people were killed in drunk driving crashes between Thanksgiving and New Year’s in 2015.
Sacramento County DUI Coalition reminds everyone to follow these simple tips to stay safe:
- Plan a safe way to get home before you attend the party. Alcohol impairs judgment, as well as reaction time. If you’re impaired you’re more likely to choose to drive drunk.
- Designate a sober driver; take public transportation, a car service, or a call a sober friend or family member to get home.
- Walking while impaired can be just as dangerous as drunk driving. Designate a sober friend to walk you home.
- If you see someone you think is about to drive while impaired, take their keys and help them get home safely.
Always remember to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over!
