90% of All Drunk Driving Happens After Drinking With Family, Friends, and Coworkers. There is almost always somebody around who could be part of the solution. Don't let drunk driving happen right in front of you.
Read The DUI Avoidance Lesson Plan,
take The SoberDrivers Pledge,
and find a designated driver service in The
National Directory of Designated Driver Services.
SafeKey is an Ignition Interlock System which does NOT use a breathalyzer. You can read about it in our "Personal Tech - Avoiding DUI with Devices" article.
Scooter Guy is one of the many designated driver services you can find in the NDDDS. These companies come to where you have been drinking and drive you home in your car!
"I never worry about being driven to drink,
I only worry about being driven home."
In America on average, nearly 11,000 people die every year in DUI-related accidents. This decline of a couple hundred fatalities per year is a function of improved vehicle safety, NOT the necessary change in our behaviors. A full 1/3 of all arrested for DUI/DWI are repeat offenders.
Since the September 11 terror attacks, over 140,000 men women and children have died in America as a result of drunk driving. Laws providing a deterrent are not enough. We need to address the behaviors in our culture that put drunk drivers on the road. It is time to stand up and admit that as a culture, we drink together and LET each other drive away. - Allen D.
