Drive sober or Get Pulled Over

Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving 


 

 

Every day, 28 people in the United States die in an alcohol-related vehicle crash that's one person every 51 minutes. Drunk driving fatalities have fallen by a third in the last three decades; however, the chance of being in an alcohol-impaired crash is still one in three over the course of a lifetime. These deaths and damages contribute to a cost of $52B per year.

 

Alcohol is a substance that reduces the function of the brain, impairing thinking, reasoning and muscle coordination. All these abilities are essential to operating a vehicle safely.

 

As alcohol levels rise in a person’s system, the negative effects on the central nervous system increase too. Alcohol is absorbed directly through the walls of the stomach and small intestine. Then it passes into the bloodstream where it accumulates until it is metabolized by the liver. Alcohol level is measured by the weight of the alcohol in a certain volume of blood. This is called Blood Alcohol Concentration, or BAC. At BAC of 0.08 grams of alcohol per deciliter of blood, crash risk increases exponentially. Because of this risk, it’s illegal in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to drive with 0.08 BAC or higher. However, even a small amount of alcohol can affect driving ability. In 2014, 1,764 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes where BAC was less than 0.08 BAC.

 

BAC is measured with a breathalyzer, a device that measures the amount of alcohol in a driver’s breath, or by a blood test.

 

The Effects of Blood Alcohol Concentration

 
 

 

BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION: .02% TYPICAL EFFECTS: Some loss of judgment, relaxation, slight body warmth, altered mood. PREDICTABLE EFFECTS ON DRIVING: Decline in visual functions (rapid tracking of a moving target), decline in ability to perform two tasks at the same time (divided attention).

BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION: .05% TYPICAL EFFECTS: Exaggerated behavior, may have loss of small-muscle control (e.g. focusing your eyes), impaired judgment, usually good feeling, lowered alertness, release of inhibition. PREDICTABLE EFFECTS ON DRIVING: Reduced coordination, reduced ability to track moving objects, difficulty steering, reduced response to emergency driving situations.

 
 

BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION: .08% TYPICAL EFFECTS: Muscle coordination becomes poor (e.g., balance, speech, vision, reaction time, and hearing), harder to detect danger, judgment, self-control, reasoning, and memory are impaired. PREDICTABLE EFFECTS ON DRIVING: Concentration, short-term memory loss, speed control, reduced information processing capability (e.g. signal detection, visual search), impaired perception.

 
 

 

BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION: .10% TYPICAL EFFECTS: Clear deterioration of reaction time and control, slurred speech, poor coordination, and slowed thinking. PREDICTABLE EFFECTS ON DRIVING: Reduced ability to maintain lane position and brake appropriately

 

BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION: .15% TYPICAL EFFECTS: Far less muscle control than normal, vomiting may occur (unless this level is reached slowly or a person has developed a tolerance for alcohol), major loss of balance. PREDICTABLE EFFECTS ON DRIVING: Substantial impairment in vehicle control, attention to driving task, and in necessary visual and auditory information processing.

 
 

 

Driving after Drinking

 

Driving after drinking is deadly, yet it still continues to happen across the United States. If you drive while impaired, you could get arrested, or worse - be involved in a traffic crash that causes serious injury or death.

 

Approximately one-third of all traffic crash fatalities in the United States involve drunk drivers (with blood alcohol concentrations [BACs] of .08 of higher). In 2014, there were 9,967 people killed in these preventable crashes. In fact, on average, over 10,000 people have died each year (2010 to 2014) in drunk-driving crashes.

 

In every State, it’s illegal to drive with a BAC of .08 or higher, yet one person is killed in a drunk-driving crash every 51 minutes in the United States.

 

Men are more likely than women to be driving drunk in fatal crashes. In 2014, 23 percent of males were drunk in these crashes, compared to 15 percent for females.

 

Responsible Behavior

 

BEING A RESPONSIBLE DRIVER IS SIMPLE IF YOU ARE DRINKING, PLAN NOT TO DRIVE. Take steps to prevent drunk driving:

  • If you will be drinking, plan on not driving. Plan your safe ride home before you start the party. Designate a sober driver ahead of time.
  • If you become intoxicated, do not drive for any reason. Call a taxi, phone a sober friend or family member, use public transportation, etc.  Also, try NHTSA’s SaferRide mobile app, which allows users to call a taxi or friend and identify their location so they can be picked up.
  • If someone you know has been drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel. Take their keys, take them home, or help them arrange a sober ride. 
  • If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact your local law enforcement. Your actions could help save someone’s life
  • If you’re hosting a party where alcohol will be served, make sure all guests leave with a sober driver.
  • Always wear your seat belt it’s your best defense against impaired drivers.

Stop on Red Week

Red-light Running is Preventable

 

 

Top 10 Reasons To Stop On Red:

1.    Red-light running is dangerous.

2.     Between 2004-2014, an estimated 8,517 people were killed from red-light running incidents and there were 7,700 crashes that involved fatalities relating to red-light runners.

3.    The cost to society of all crashes exceeds $230 billion annually.

4.    One in three Americans know someone who has been injured or killed in a red-light running crash.

5.    Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 4 and the second leading cause of death for children age 3 and 5-14.

6.    About half of the deaths in red-light running crashes are pedestrians, bicyclists and occupants in other vehicles that are hit by the red-light runners. 

7.    In 2014, more than 709 people were killed and an estimated 126,000 were injured in crashes that involved red-light running.

8.    Motorists in urban areas are more likely to be injured in crashes involving red-light running than in any other type of crash.

9.    In 2014, drivers involved in red-light running related accidents were more than likely to be male, younger, and have prior crashes or alcohol-impaired convictions.

10.  More than 39 percent of drivers continue to run red-lights and take risks, despite the fact that 55 percent of the participants said it is a very serious threat and 94 percent acknowledged that running red-lights is unacceptable.
