DRINKING & DRIVING
USAFleetSupply offers educational videos via DVD on Drinking and Driving. These videos are an excellent training tool for educating teen drivers and others about the consequences of drinking and driving. These DVD's are very popular for high schools and driver education instruction schools.
Driving while either intoxicated or drunk is dangerous and drivers with high blood alcohol content or concentration (BAC) are at greatly increased risk of car accidents, highway injuries and vehicular deaths. Possible prevention measures examined here include establishing DWI courts, suspending or revoking driver licenses, impounding or confiscating vehicle plates, impounding or immobilizing vehicles, enforcing open container bans, increasing penalties such as fines or jail for drunk driving, and mandating alcohol education. Safety seat belts, air bags, designated drivers, and effective practical ways to stay sober are also discussed.
Every injury and death caused by drunk driving is preventable. Although the crashes that are alcohol related has dropped dramatically in recent decades, there are still far too many preventable accidents. Unfortunately, in spite of progress, alcohol impaired driving remains a serious national problem that tragically effects many victims annually.
Some of the biggest factors that aid in preventing teens from drinking and driving include parental monitoring, zero tolerance laws and restrictions on the legal drinking age. All of these factors are responsible for keeping teens safe on the our roadways. The minimum legal drinking age laws are uniform throughout the entire U.S. Merchants have a legal obligation to prohibit the sale of alcohol to anyone under the age of 21. The increase of retailer compliance checks may be one of the contributing reasons in the downward shift in the number of teenage drinkers. Every state also enforces strict zero tolerance policies. This means that drivers under the age of 21 that are caught with any amount of alcohol in their systems will face serious penalties. Beginner drivers do not get the privileges of a full license when they first pass their drivers tests.
Alcohol has very different effects on different people for various reasons, including gender, weight, how fast alcohol is consumed, and etc. Alcohol can affect your own body differently on separate occasions as well. Even if you have had the same amount of alcohol, your blood alcohol concentration may vary in different instances.
Although current awareness regarding drunk driving has reduced the number of DUI related deaths and injuries, the laws surrounding drugged driving remain yet to be standardized. That does not mean that driving under the influence of drugs is less dangerous. A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study conducted in 2009 found that 18% of fatally injured drivers tested positive for at least one drug. Drugs affect your body in a similar way that alcohol does, including alteration of perception, lack of coordination and balance and slow reaction times. Be aware of the facts and be responsible.
