It’s Time to End Drunk Driving
Help impaired drivers make the right choice
Some people just don’t get it. They drink recklessly and still get behind the wheel. They stop by for a couple beers with friends, but end up getting smashed. Literally. Help us help others to make the right decision. Designate a driver before drinking is involved. Or call a cab for someone who shouldn’t drive — for their lives and the lives of others.
- Impaired driving is one of the most common and deadliest crimes in the country.
- Among drivers involved in fatal crashes on weekends, 30 percent are alcohol-impaired.
- In Iowa, alcohol is the third-highest contributing factor in fatal traffic crashes.
Blood-Alcohol Level Calculator
This sliding scale calculator shows how quickly alcohol impairs your ability to drive. Know when to say when before you cross the line. Literally.
Based on these
This calculator is only a guide. Many factors can impact your BAC. They include, but are not limited to, the following: age, gender, body type, fat/muscle content, diabetes, medications, emotional state, food intake, carbonation, rate of consumption, drink strength, and alcohol intolerance.
Make A Smart Decision
It seems logical to us: if you’ve been drinking, don’t drive. But somehow this message isn’t getting through to everyone. Help prevent alcohol-related traffic accidents and deaths by influencing drivers to make a smart decision — to keep their keys in their pocket and refrain from driving after drinking.
Responsibility is contagious.
It’s not just about the driver’s safety; it’s about the safety of everyone on the roadways. Help us spread the word about being responsible: don’t drink and drive, and don’t let friends drink and drive. Being responsible saves lives.
Friends Do Whatever It Takes
Take their keys. But don’t take a risk.
Sometimes you have to get creative to keep a buddy from driving drunk. This campaign aims to lower alcohol-related accidents and fatalities by encouraging young adults to do whatever it takes to keep their friends from getting behind the wheel.
