Did you know that in 2008, just over the Labor Day holiday weekend, 194 people were killed in crashes involving an impaired driver?
This Labor Day, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council are trying to remind people to plan ahead and designate a sober driver for any Labor Day celebration because “Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving.”
One of the most important things you can do before you go out is to designate a sober driver. If you’re throwing a party, make sure to offer up non-alcoholic drinks for the sober drivers in your group. You can check out 50 non-alcoholic party drink recipes right here.
You can also search a nationwide list of alternative ride programs .
Finally, check out the Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving web site. There you can sign a pledge not to drink and drive, play “Spot the Difference”, an interactive fame that simulates the effects of buzzed driving, and watch a real-life video about how buzzed driving changed one woman’s life.
