National Impaired Driving Prevention Month: Do your part

POSTED ON: 12/14/2020

December was chosen for the National Impaired Driving Prevention Month initiative due to the increase in travel and impaired driving each year between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. As the holiday party season approaches, several groups are joining forces to keep the roads safe. Many agencies are coordinating an annual campaign to target impaired drivers and help keep motorists safe. 

Increased awareness

With additional funds being spent on advertising, motorists will hopefully think before they drink. If you see a driver that appears to be impaired, contact your local law enforcement. When communities know that law enforcement is extra committed to catching drunk drivers, it encourages extra pairs of eyes on the road.

Additional law enforcement

The campaign highlights a constant police presence with the goal of deterring people from drinking and driving. Many law enforcement agencies across Alabama will schedule additional officers to saturate roadway patrol efforts and to conduct checkpoints for seat belt usage and impaired drivers. 

Reminders to keep everyone safe

Motorists should have a plan to get home safely BEFORE deciding to drink. Driving under the influence of drugs is also illegal and dangerous. Make sure you understand the effects of even prescription or over-the-counter medication as many drugs have the potential of affecting your ability to drive safely. If you feel different, you drive different. For those motorists that are not using alcohol or drugs but must pass through inconvenient checkpoints, just remember that these stops help to save lives. Your cooperation during these checkpoints helps to keep things running smoothly. 

Speak up!

Remind your family and friends of the importance of driving sober. The holiday season is merry and bright…until you look at drunk driving statistics during this time. Raising awareness for safety on the roadway is an important job we can all help with. Drunk driving crashes increase throughout the month of December as more people travel and attend events where alcohol is served. That is why every U.S. President since Ronald Reagan has proclaimed December National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. We are here to help you keep the roads safer. Call (866) 447-8686 or contact us online for more information on our alcohol testing products and vehicle interlock devices.
