If happened you’ve visited MADD.org (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) which envision to stop drunk driving and also support the victims of this violent crime as well prevent underage drinking. The racing enthusiasts Johnnie Walker had just jumped into the bandwagon on this campaign, to never drink and drive today. You can show your commitment with hashtag #ImNOTdriving as we enter a safer 2014.

To keep you interested with the current situation on how serious the accidents from driving under the influence of alcohol, according to NHTSA FARS data, almost every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash. And if these incidents are happening, how about the number of fatalities for every car accidents?

In 2012, 10,322 people died in drunk driving crashes and that’s astonishing one in every 51 minutes. And in the U.S. alone, every day , another 28 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes. These are pretty alarming statistics, though we see the technology have moved inside the car’s cabin to almost automatically prevent car accidents, that doesn’t stopped it from happening.

Only time will sober a person up. Drinking strong coffee, exercising or taking a cold shower will not help, according from the study of Michigan State University. If you’ll drink, try to have your limits or as well try to wait till you think you’re comfortable to drive.

You can always keep in mind the hashtag, #ImNOTdriving and to have self discipline if you’ll be driving.

Lastly, celebrate this new year safe. Don’t drink and drive safely.

“A split second decision can be the difference between finishing first, last, or not at all. Make the right choice and stay in control.”
