The month of December is one of the most anticipated of the year. This time is spent gathering with friends and family. It is also a time where prevention can be especially crucial. Statistics say that the month of December is one of the deadliest months for impaired driving. This month reminds us to share the dangers of impaired driving with communities around us.
Since 1981, every president in the United States has proclaimed December as National Drunk & Drugged Driving Prevention Month, but more recently, it has became National Impaired Driving Prevention Month to create awareness about the dangers of driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol.
If you are planning on traveling during the holidays and have been drinking, do not operate a vehicle. It could cost you or someone else their life. Think before you act.
