"I'll just have a few beers with dinner, I'll be fine to drive." Too many drivers in Texas and across the nation believe this to be true. However, emerging research shows that driving with a BAC as low as 0.01%, the equivalent of one beer in a two hour period, puts you at a higher risk of getting into a serious drunk driving crash.
What We Should Do About It Buzzed Driving
As Texans, we need to look out for one another. As with any information that has the potential to save lives, reduce crashes and injuries, we must get the word out. Sharing the news that buzzed driving is as dangerous as drunk driving among your friends, even on social media networks such as Facebook, may by all it takes to save a life.
We have to change our attitude about drinking and driving. This behavior should not be looked at as acceptable, it should be viewed as the irresponsible and dangerous behavior that it is.
Our Colleyville, TX staff and attorneys have seen far too many families affected by the choices a drunk driver has made. Often, nobody cared enough to stop the person from drinking and driving, they just assumed that it would be fine, that their friend or family member would arrive safely at home. This is no longer OK.
Let's work together, starting today, to put an end to drunk driving. By withholding a driver's key, by picking up the phone and calling a cab, you are making the responsible decision, a decision that you will not regret. This decision could help save a life.
