The holidays are a time when many people are celebrating family, friends, and good fortune. Unfortunately, it is also a time when many people get in the car and drive even though they have had too much to drink. The number of DUIs issued by police during holiday times goes up dramatically. The sad fact is that drunk driving is a significant cause of death in the United States, and in many cases, the person who dies did nothing wrong except to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. While the problem of drunk driving will never go away, everyone can do their part to minimize the problem by taking several simple actions:
- If you are out, and you have had too much to drink, don’t drive. There are several alternatives.
- Ask for a ride
- Spend the night at someone else’s home
- Call a cab
- Offer a ride to friends or relatives who have had too much to drink
- If you are hosting a party, offer to let people spend the night if they have drunk too much.
