Social Experiment – Teens and Drunk Drivers

On average, a drunk driver will drive 80 times under the influence before their first arrest. Think about how many times you’ve ridden with a diver who maybe had one drinks too many – and that’s an adult. Teens and young adults don’t know their limit, prone to binge drinking. Your child, maybe even college student, is faced with the decision to ride with someone who has been drinking more often than you would hope.

In this video, we witness american teenagers who are about to drink and drive while others are tested in their ability to say no or get in the car with them –
Millions have died due to drunk drivers believing they have it under control behind the wheel after they’ve had too much to drink. Don’t ride with or let a friend drive drunk.

Preparing Your College Students for the Dangers of Drinking and Driving

We are less than a month away from the beginning of the fall semester for college students. As a parent you might be roaming Target for the perfect dorm room decorations for your soon-to-be or current college student, working out a budget for an allowance, and checking with your insurance company about your child’s car while they’re out of state. Wherever you’re at in the checklist – make sure that talking to your child about the dangers of drunk driving has been checked off. College students are guaranteed to host parties on and off campus – and where there is alcohol – bad choices are never far behind.

In “A Snapshot of Annual High-Risk College Drinking Consequences” by College Drinking Prevention — 1,825 college students between the ages of 18-24 die from alcohol-related unintentional injuries, including motor vehicle accidents.
