Don't Drive Buzzed This Halloween!


Whether at a Halloween party, a costume contest at a bar or trick-or-treating through the neighborhood, many of us will be on the road this weekend. Please remember if you have one too many or way too many it is not safe to get behind the wheel. There isn’t a Halloween costume clever enough to hide an impaired driver who has made the poor decision to get behind the wheel. Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving!

Halloween night is often one of the deadliest nights of the year due to the number of impaired drivers on the streets.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2009, 48 percent of all traffic fatalities on Halloween night involved a driver or a motorcycle rider with a BAC of .08 or higher.  Halloween means dark streets full of little kids distracted by candy and costumes. That makes it especially important to start planning a safe and sober ride home from whatever fun you’ll be having that night — so your evening doesn’t take a truly scary turn.
One of the most important things you can do before going out is designate a sober driver. If you’re throwing a Halloween party, make sure to offer non-alcoholic drinks for the sober drivers. You can find 50 Non-Alcoholic Drink Recipes here.

You can sign a pledge not to drink and drive; play “Spot the Difference,” an interactive game that simulates the effects of buzzed driving; and watch a real-life video about how buzzed driving changed one woman’s life. On the Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving website.
Check out the list of sober/safe ride programs~here as you can find a list of alternative rides and most are available 24/7.



This Halloween, let’s work together to put an end to buzzed driving!!
