Take It From Me: Have a Happy & Safe Halloween!

Have a Happy & Safe Halloween!

Halloween night is often one of the deadliest nights of the year due to the number of impaired drivers on the streets.  According to the National HighwayTraffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2009, 48 percent of all traffic fatalities on Halloween night involved a driver or a motorcycle rider with a BAC of .08 or higher.  Halloween means dark streets full of little kids distracted by candy and costumes. That makes it especially important to start planning a safe and sober ride home from whatever fun you’ll be having tonight — so your evening doesn’t take a truly scary turn!
Whether at a Halloween party, a costume contest at a bar, or trick-or-treating through the neighborhood, many of us will be on the road tonight. NHTSA and the Ad Council are reminding everyone that the best way to stay safe is to plan ahead and designate a sober driver before you head out for your Halloween festivities.
Here are some great tools that can help you be safe:
• Halloween poster (FOUND HERE)— A poster to remind people that if you drive buzzed on Halloween, your evening could turn into a real nightmare.
• Designated Driver Drink List — One of the most important things you can do before going out is designate a sober driver. If you’re throwing a Halloween party,make sure to offer non-alcoholic drinks for the sober drivers. Here is a list of 50 non-alcoholic party drink recipes!

This Halloween, let’s work together to put an end to buzzed driving!  Plan ahead and designate a sober driver!  And remember...Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving!!
