New Year’s Resolution
The public service announcement says: Don’t Drink and Drive!
Someone is not listening because one in six of all deaths on the road involve drivers who are over the limit. Do they think it doesn’t pertain to them? Do they think at all?
This New Year’s Eve resolve not to drive drunk or let anyone else. Make sure that you and your friends have a safe way home. Designate a sober driver, give your car keys up at the beginning of your evening, or make plans to take a taxi or other public transport.
12-ounce can of beer
5-ounce glass of wine…………all contain the same amount of alcohol
12-ounce wine cooler
ounce-and a-half of liquor
Beer and wine are as intoxicating as hard liquor.
As a taxi driver, here in the Bay Area, I have picked up and talked with many people that have received a DUI. They tell me their lives are Hell. Their driving privileges are taken away with lengthy license suspensions, and a DUI conviction can be a very expensive.
