Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving Especially On New Years Eve

The campaign Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving is important but even more so on New Years Eve. New Years Eve is often associated with parties and drinking. I have no issue with that, but getting behind the wheel and driving while buzzed is serious and can be deadly. Can you tell the difference between being buzzed and being drunk? There is none! If you are impaired, you are drunk.

Watch Emily’s Story, a video about how believing that you are “just buzzed” can completely change your life.

So what can we do to help stop Buzzed Driving?

  • Join the Facebook page Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving and follow Buzzed Driving on Twitter to get updates and facts about the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) and the Ad Council’s campaign to end Buzzed Driving.
  • Take the Pledge to not drive while buzzed.
  • If you are serving drinks at your party, provide rides for your guests or a place for them to spend the night.
  • If you are going out and drinking, have a designated driver or hire a taxi or other form of transportation.
  • Check “Free Rides New Years Eve” with your city or town to learn if there is free transportation available on that night.
  • Don’t say, “should have”.

Be safe this New Years Eve and the years to come. Remember that Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving.

  1. Excellent reminder. My husband is working 911 tonight, so he can attest to the effects of drunk driving.
