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.
