Thinking About Driving After “Just “ a Few Drinks?
Think Again! Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving!!
Pretty much everyone now knows not to drink and drive, due to rigorous ad campaigns from groups such as MAD, and the public service announcements by the Federal government as well. But, does the general public know that “buzzed driving” is just as dangerous as drunk driving?
With so much public education offered on the subject, it remains a puzzle as to how
many people get into the driver’s seat after having several drinks . The results can be tragic, as well as fatal. Current statistics show there is a drunk driving death every 31 minutes in this country. In addition, more than 240,000 people are seriously injured annually in accidents in which alcohol was a factor. That works out to one person injured in a drunk driving accident in the US every 2 minutes. Many of these accidents are from what is known as Buzzed Driving.
While drinking and driving remains a major public health concern, public education does not seem to have made any noticeable decrease in alcohol related accidents. Despite the amount of attention drinking and driving has received in the past 30 years, annual drunk driving deaths continue to climb each year.
