If you drink, don’t drive, call for a ride.
Before you know it, a few drinks become a few too many. You decide to drive home because “It’s not that far.” What is the worst that can happen? You get pulled over? Your insurance goes up? You lose your license? You total your car? You kill someone? One person is killed about every 50 minutes in a drunk driving crash. Don’t let that be you. Call for a ride.
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.
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% are alcohol-impaired.
- In Iowa, alcohol is the third-highest contributing factor in fatal traffic crashes.
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.
Did You Know?
Alcohol use is one of the leading causes of fatal traffic crashes. In Iowa, alcohol is second only to excessive speed as a contributing factor in overall traffic crashes.
In 2018, 27% of Iowa’s total traffic fatalities were alcohol impaired.
Drivers with BACs of .08 or higher involved in fatal crashes were 4 times more likely to have prior convictions for driving while impaired than were drivers with no alcohol.
Every 48 minutes someone in the U.S. dies in a crash with an impaired driver.
Drug Impaired Driving (DUID)
Driving under the influence of illegal or legal (prescription) drugs has been an emerging issue with traffic safety and fatality crashes on US roads.
While driving under the influence of alcohol is most common, don’t forget that drugs, either legal or illegal, can impair your judgment while driving. Whether you’ve had one too many, or way too many, never drive impaired.
