The holiday season is a peak time for drunk driving as hospital emergency rooms can attest. Due to the increase in parties, reunions with high school friends and family, time spent without academics, and a lack of planning ahead- drunk driving seems to sky rocket. Alcohol related traffic collisions are actually the leading cause of death in 2-33 year olds.
Instead of adding to the statistic this winter if you choose to drink, think about what options you have in your new location. Take a cab. Volunteer to be the Designated Driver. Ask a sibling (or a friend's sibling) to pick you up. Keep yourself safe this winter break- we want to see you back here in January!
