Practice Safe Driving this Memorial Day Weekend

With a three-day weekend in store for most, day drinking is prominent. Feeling invincible behind the wheel while intoxicated puts everyone at risk – those in the vehicle and others on the road. There’s no harm in drinking while celebrating but once you start to put other’s lives in danger, it becomes a serious problem. Even if you’ll be one of the designated drivers, it is detrimental to be aware of drunk drivers on the road with you. Here’s what to look for —

Law enforcement officials say there are several signs associated with drunk driving:

  • Making wide turns
  • Weaving, swerving, drifting, or straddling the center line
  • Almost striking an object or vehicle
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Driving at a very slow speed
  • Stopping without cause
  • Braking erratically
  • Responding slowly to traffic signals
  • Turning abruptly or illegally
  • Driving after dark with headlights off

National Beer Day – How You Can Enjoy Yourself AND Stay Safe

National Beer Day is a day that some might take advantage of and may result with life altering consequences.

As Karen Mertes’ life hung in the balance after a tragic car accident caused by a drunk driver. Karen suffered a traumatic injury and was forced to fight through a personal injury litigation battle to get some justice. For some, there isn’t a next chapter.

Don’t let one day – or night – of reckless drinking negatively impact your life and the lives around you.

Here are 5 facts about drinking and driving from dosomething.org

  1. Impairment is not reliant upon the type of alcohol consumed, rather the number of drinks over a certain period of time. Despite myths and misconceptions, coffee, a cold shower, or exercise will not make a person soberer; only time will.
  2. On average, a drunk driver will drive 80 times under the influence before their first arrest.
  3. Every 51 minutes in America, someone is killed in a drunk driving crash. That equates to 27 people every day. Offer to be your parents’ designated driver to ensure that everybody gets home safe. Sign up for Parents Ride Shotty.
  4. For drivers under 21, the U.S. has a No Tolerance policy that does not allow any alcohol to be in the blood system while behind the wheel. The consequences could include expensive fines, loss of license or jail.
  5. Someone is injured in a drunk driving incident every 120 seconds.

Enjoy the holiday, but don’t let one night change your entire life!
