buzzed driving is drunk driving...

I love the Holiday season! Houses decorated with lights glistening in the snow, the smell of a fresh cut pine tree, the crackling of a fire in the fireplace and the spirit of strangers you pass on the streets wishing you a 'Happy Holiday!'

While we are spreading our holiday cheer to our loved ones and friends there is someone out there who was also spreading holiday cheer-an impaired driver. I don't always believe that people are out there intentionally getting into their cars and driving while intoxicated but they do-do it often without thinking of the consequences for themselves, their families and others on the road along with their families.

This Holiday season along with the NHTSA-National Highway Traffic Safety Administration I want to help save the life of  you, your neighbor, parent, husband, friend or child from being a statistic. If you or someone you know has had even one drink, please offer them a ride or find them an alternate means of transportation just don't let them get behind the wheel of a car and drive!

Drive drunk and you'll get a lot worse than coal in your stocking.

There are many ways to insure that we all have a safe and Happy Holiday: If your throwing a party make sure and offer non-alcoholic beverages for the designated drivers, make sure you have a list of nationwide alternative rides on hand, designate sober drivers and set these 'laws' into motion before hand so that there won't be any arguing the night of the party.
