The holiday season has officially begun. Happy Holidays! We want to remind everyone of the importance in planning for a sober ride home. Everyone loves a good party and it is the time of year where there will be an abundance of libations served at every holiday party. It is important to be one step ahead of the ball and plan a sober ride home before you attend the party. It is very easy to get into the car and drive away tipsy but we are asking you to call a cab or coordinate a ride with a friend or family member. A drunk driver is thirteen times more likely to cause an accident than a sober one. In the United States, more than 30 percent of all fatal crashes involve at least one driver who has been drinking. During the late-night hours, when alcohol consumption is the highest, that proportion rises to nearly 60 percent. The facts about drunk driving are alarming. Overall, 1 of every 140 miles is driven drunk, or 21 billion miles each year. Stay safe this holiday season and plan a sober ride home!
