Baltimore Car Accident Lawyers: Drunk Driving PreventionNovember 19, 2016
From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, the holiday season is filled with office events, family gatherings, and cocktail parties celebrating everything from Christmas and Hanukah to ringing in the New Year. But this also happens to be one of the most dangerous times of the year to be on the road. Partygoers who have had too much to drink are driving home from friends’ houses or local bars, putting themselves and others on the road at risk of being seriously injured in a drunk driving car accident. If you are hosting a holiday party this year, consider participating in the “Tie One On For Safety” program created by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) in their ongoing effort to eliminate drunk driving.
Every year, over 10,000 people are fatally injured in drunk driving accidents, with thousands more left seriously injured. MADD created “Tie One On For Safety” in an effort to raise public awareness and remind everyone, particularly underage drinkers, that drinking and driving are a dangerous mix. To participate in the program, take the following steps:
- Assign a designated driver before a party so that everyone gets home safely.
- Obtain MADD ribbon, magnets, and window decals from your local MADD affiliate and display them in a visible location.
- Be a responsible host by offering non-alcoholic beverages to underage guests. Arrange for alternate transportation, or provide accommodations for guests who are unable to drive.
- Spread the “Tie One On For Safety” message by sharing information about the project on Facebook and other social media sites.
- Make a donation to MADD. Nationwide Insurance matches every donation dollar for dollar to help victims of drunk driving.
Drunk driving car accidents are 100 percent preventable if individuals take responsibility for their actions and do not drink and drive. Make responsible choices that keep yourself and those around you safe and healthy this holiday season.
