Embracing a Healthy Family: Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving: Take the Pledge

Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving: Take the Pledge



Take the pledge to not get behind the wheel even if you or someone you know is only buzzed as buzzed driving is drunk driving.  Impaired driving is no accident. It's a serious and deadly crime that kills every 30 minutes.  This holiday season, especially tomorrow night, New Year's Eve, is a particular time to ensure no one is injured or killed over drinking and driving.

Watch Emily's story on how Buzzed Driving affected her life:



The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), the Ad Council and Global Influence wants everyone to drive smart all the time and especially tomorrow night.  Take the pledge, follow on Twitter (@buzzeddriving) and become a Facebook fan

In 2008, nearly 12,000 people in the U.S. were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes - and during the periods around Christmas and New Year's, this number was particularly high, with 316 people killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes. In 2007, 162,493 women were arrested for a DUI, an increase of almost 29% since 1998. 

I have not lost anyone fortunately to drunken driving and pray I never do.  It's such a tragic and senseless act to commit.
