White House Declares National Impaired Driving Prevention Month

The President made a proclamation naming this December National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. The goal is to reduce the unacceptable number of car and truck accidents involving distracted driving, alcohol and drug use. The proclamation is just one of the tools being used by the current administration to reduce drugged driving by ten percent over the next five years.

The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign has also targeted impaired driving this holiday season. Both campaigns are timed to curb impaired driving during the time of year when it is most likely to occur. The holidays are a time of celebration, but they are also a time when too many drivers make poor decisions about driving under the influence. Every year, fatal car accidents change the way some families view the holidays.

The death of a mother or father, a son or daughter, or a friend in an impaired driving accident is a tragedy that can be avoided. Police work hard to catch violators who combine drinking or drug use with driving. Lawmakers pass stringent measures designed to punish offenders and hold them accountable for the harm they cause. These measures often come too late. It is up to all of us to help people make smart decisions about impaired driving. By stopping someone from getting behind the wheel while drunk or high, you could be saving their life and the lives of others on the roadways.

Drugged driving, drunk driving, and distracted driving cost Americans billions of dollars and steal the lives of thousands of people every year. Hopefully this proclamation will help people be mindful of the dangers of these negligent behaviors. Help make the holidays a safe and enjoyable time for everyone by working to prevent impaired driving.
