National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month 2019

Last Updated Aug 21, 2020

With December coming in fast, parties will be abound. And when there are parties, there are drinks. Historical data have shown that during this month, when everybody just keeps on partying, fatality rate due to drunk driving is the highest all year-long. In fact, National Safety Council estimates that there are over 40,000 people who died last year in alcohol-related traffic accidents. Thus the National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month.

National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month is a month-long event done every December that aims to raise awareness about the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Drug and alcohol use impair judgment, delay reaction times, and can result in deadly consequences when driving.

Most people would never imagine that their holiday celebration could result in a fatality or imprisonment, but the risks associated with driving while impaired are very real and can result in tragic consequences for everyone involved.

During Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, recommit yourself to preventing the loss of life by reminding others to be sober and drug free, and use safe driving practices on the road. Drink responsibly, drive responsibly and encourage family members, friends and co-workers to be safe and responsible drivers for the holidays and beyond.

Wellness inspiration of the week

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills… There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind… So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself. — MARCUS AURELIUS
