Picture it. You drove your friends out for dinner one night and it’s getting late. Your friends had a few drinks, and you enjoyed the tasty boneless wings. Now that you’re all ready to go, you find out an Uber ride is too expensive. Or public transportation just happened to not be running at the time. There is one option, but you don’t know if you necessarily like it…
Do you feel like you’re the new designated driver for your friends because of the Ignition Interlock in your vehicle?
Designated Drivers Are the Unsung Heroes
It seems like a bummer at first thought, but you may want to change your mind set about the situation: you’re more than just the ride home. You are saving lives by keeping your friends and the rest of the public safe from drunk driving incidents. Plus, your friends can always pay you back with endless food, non-alcoholic beverages or gas money for your valiant efforts.
The number one reason that people drive drunk is because they thought they were OK to drive. Your friend may make a terrible choice that can ruin or end lives if they consumed alcohol and then decide to drive home themselves.
Ignition Interlocks: The Ultimate Tool Against Drunk Driving
With an Ignition Interlock, you cannot start your vehicle if there’s a certain level of alcohol in your system. Any state-approved device is fool-proof with robust technology like the fuel cell that captures someone’s breath alcohol concentration or BrAC in seconds. As you use your Ignition Interlock, you may see it as more of a necessary safety tool than a bother.
Designated drivers may not receive all the thanks that they deserve, but they certainly make a huge difference on our roads. With you joining the ranks, you are making a difference, too.
