were 10,511 deaths from drunk-driving crashes in 2018, according to the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In 2017, 29% of motor
vehicle traffic fatalities were caused by drunk driving, where 220 of the
victims were children age 14 and under. December is National Drunk and Drugged
Driving Prevention Month, and while knowing the terrifying statistics that
result from drunk driving is important, it’s
action that makes all the difference in these numbers.
Ways to Prevent Impaired Driving
like marijuana and cocaine are involved in about 18 percent of motor vehicle
driver deaths, and almost 30 people in the United States die in drunk-driving
crashes every day. While these deaths have fallen over the last three decades,
claiming over 10,000 lives a year is unacceptable for what are completely
the holiday season descends and the rate of drunk and drugged driving accidents
ramp up, take the time to think smart, drive smart, and follow these tips for
preventing a fatal crash, not only on special occasions
but every day:
Designate a sober driver. The best person in your group to drive you home is
not the least intoxicated person, it’s the person who has not had a drop of
alcohol at all. Designate a sober driver before your outing begins and make
sure they stick to their promise.
If you know you’re going to be driving home but you also know you want to have
a drink, pace yourself. Allow one hour between drinks, and remember that it
takes at least an hour to get rid of a one drink from your body, whether that’s
a 5-ounce glass of wine, a 1-ounce shot of liquor, or a 12-ounce beer.
Set limits. When
you plan to imbibe, set a limit for yourself, like two drinks, then two hours
of water and sobering up before you head onto the streets. Also have non-alcoholic
beverages and food to temper the alcohol.
Sober up. If
you have had too much to drink or indulged in drugs, stay where you are and don’t
get behind the wheel. If that means you have to crash where you are, do it,
just so you can stay safe on the roads and protect those around you from your
Call a ride.
Call a cab, an Uber, or a friend or neighbor to drive you to your next
destination. Better yet, take a ride to your destination and leave your car keys
at home so you’re not tempted at all to start driving when your mind and body
and reflexes are incapable.
Don’t mix alcohol with other drugs. If you are on prescription medication that advises
you to avoid drinking when on the drug, follow doctor’s orders.
Don’t ride with someone who is impaired. Take the time to evaluate whether someone has had too
much to drink before you get in the passenger seat of their vehicle.
Smart, Drive Sober
Drunk and drugged driving impairs judgment and
delays reaction times. Mix impairment with distraction, like using a cell phone
or messing with the radio, and you are a double deadly threat to other
motorists when you’re behind the wheel.
Celebrate responsibly. Drive responsibly. Be safe
on Christmas, New Year’s, and every day. If you have been involved in a drunk
driving car accident or lost a loved one in a fatal crash, contact David C. Femminineo, Michigan car accident
lawyer in Macomb County to schedule your consultation.
