With the unfortunate rise of dangerous behavior such as distracted and drugged driving, it can be easy to overlook drunk driving, a choice that’s just as dangerous. With initiatives like Alcohol Awareness Month in April however, we can put the spotlight back on drinking and driving, a continuous leading cause of death on American roadways.
Putting Drunk Driving Back in the Conversation
Alcohol Awareness Month primarily highlights alcohol abuse and encourages others to take action. Alcohol Awareness Month, created by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, can inspire someone to start a conversation with a friend or family member who may need help with alcoholism or alcohol abuse. It also inspires parents to start speaking with their child and educate them about the effects of alcohol.
One misconception that still reigns among many people is underestimating alcohol’s effects on the human body. Even one standard drink can start to cause impairment. Depending on how much you drink, you can experience impaired thinking, lack of muscle coordination and delayed reasoning skills. This all can turn into a dangerous formula when it comes to driving.
Alcohol can make someone think they are OK to drive home, and then they make the unfortunate 100% preventable choice to drive drunk. If you have a DUI and need an Ignition Interlock, we are here to help you meet this requirement. An Ignition Interlock saves lives and is proven to reduce recidivism in drivers.
