Every year in the U.S, thousands of innocent lives are taken due to drunk driving. In North Carolina alone, over 350 people lose their life every year due to an alcohol-related crash. Drunk drivers selfishly put themselves and others at risk for possible life-threatening injuries, not to mention a possible arrest and suspended license.
Last Friday, North Carolina launched the start to the annual drunk driving enforcement campaign, which will run until Labor Day. State and law officials across North Carolina will be conducting sobriety checkpoints to crack down on drunk drivers and to provide North Carolina residents with alternatives to impaired driving.
These choices are included in the “Be Smarter Than That” program, which allows people the following options:
• A sober driver
• A mobile ride app
• Public transportation options
• Taxi options based on location.
At Daggett Shuler we want to remind you to always plan ahead if you know you are going to be drinking. It’s easy enough to leave the car at home, take an Uber, a Lyft or an old-fashioned taxicab. Or simply appoint a designated driver, when you know you will be consuming alcohol.
The consequences of impaired driving are simply not worth it. The aftermath is irreversible and can have devastating effects. Together, we can work to minimize the number of deaths and accidents related to drunk driving and keep the roads of North Carolina safer for everyone.
