Don’t drink and drive. Designate a driver or call a cab instead.
It happens. You may not have planned on drinking, but perhaps you got caught up in a night out with friends or ended up going out for a cocktail after work. If you’ve chosen to drink and you don’t have a designated driver or a safe way to get home, we encourage you to contact a local designated driving service.
Here are some statistics to keep in mind before you drink and get behind the wheel of a car:
- Every day in the United States, 27 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes.
- According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in fatal crashes in 2014, the highest percentage of drunk drivers was for drivers ages 21 to 24 (30 percent), followed by ages 25 to 34 (29 percent) and 35 to 44 (24 percent).
- Drunk driving involvement in fatal crashes in 2014 was almost four times higher at night than during the day (34 versus 9 percent).
Fortunately, Metro Detroiters who have overindulged can get home easily and safely thanks to a number of personal driving services.
