Where To?

If you plan to drive home, even one drink can be too many. You’ve been warned. You’ll be lucky if you don’t get arrested or in a serious accident. Life as you know it may be over.

In 2012, 10,322 people died in drunk driving crashes – one every 51 minutes. Drivers at .08 BAC are four times more likely to cause a crash than sober drivers. On average, one in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.

You’re relaxed and in a good mood. It’s a great night to walk home. Heading back to your place? Find someone to lean on. You can barely stand, let alone walk. Get help going home.

In 2012, 10,322 people were killed and approximately 345,000 were injured in drunk driving incidents. Americans take 233 billion trips in cars each year. Of those, about one out of every two thousand trips are taken by those who are driving under the influence of alcohol. 81% of those old enough to drive perceive drinking and driving as a major threat to the personal safety of themselves and their families.

Every big night out should end with a safe ride home. Good choice. That cab fare is a lot cheaper than a DWI. Smart decision. Tell your driver where you’re going, then relax.

Drunk driving costs each adult in this country almost $500 per year. The cost of a drunk driving conviction for a first time offender can be over $5,000. If all 17 million people who admitted to driving drunk had their own state, it would be the fifth largest in the U.S.

Smart choice. Find your Metrocard, and you’ll find your way home. Be sure to have a seat at the station—and watch the gap when boarding the train. You’re not sure where you are. Make sure you get off at the right stop.

The average person metabolizes alcohol at the rate of about one drink per hour. The rate of drunk driving is highest among men (81%). Over 1.2 million drivers were arrested in 2011 for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
