So, what can you do to help protect yourself from drunk drivers? First, never get into a car when the driver is intoxicated. Even if you’re not sure whether the driver is drunk, find an alternative way to get to your destination. That decision can save your life.
If you are hosting guests where alcohol is involved, be a responsible host. You may even want to consider nonalcoholic drinks. Whatever you do, never serve alcohol to someone who is under the age of 21.
Don’t hesitate to report impaired drivers to authorities. Make sure to get the license plate number. Just think, you might be saving someone else’s life.
Lastly, though it may seem to be common sense, make sure that you and your passengers are properly buckled up. Statistics show that seat belts save lives.
