Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention


While December is officially National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, I find it extremely important that this issue be talked about more – a lot more. Accidents that involve drugs and alcohol claim thousands of lives each year in the United States. Families are left behind to pick up the pieces and do the best that they can in moving forward.

Parents need to talk to their children about the serious risks of driving under the influence. Give your children permission to refuse to get into a car with a driver that is impaired.

Many prescription medications can compromise the skills needed for safe, responsible driving. If your child is taking certain prescription medicines, it is very important that he or she know when it is safe to drive. Educate yourself and pass it on to your children. Talk about drunk and drugged driving prevention, and not just in December.
