The dangers of alcohol should always be taken very seriously. Every year, millions of people are involved in automobile accidents, some result in fatalities. The penalties for drunk driving are pretty high. Drunk driving can land you in jail or cost you your life. Teenage drunk driving is possibly the most serious of them all. According to the NHTSA/FARS and US Census Bureau about two young people who are under 21 are killed in alcohol-impaired driving fatalities for every 100,000 American under the age of 21. With Saferide Syosset you do not have to worry about teens driving drunk. We believe the best way to stop teenage drunk driving is to provide a hotline for teens to call for a designated driver.
A driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.10 or greater is seven times more likely to be involved in a fatal motor vehicle crash than is a driver who has not consumed alcoholic beverages, and a driver with an alcohol concentration of 0.15 or greater is about 25 times more likely. Alcohol affects your ability to make decisions and it will also make your reaction time much slower. It also causes poor muscle coordination which affects a person's balance, speech, vision, reaction time and hearing. A person over the limit will find it more difficult to detect danger, and exhibit impaired judgement, self-control, reasoning ability and memory.
Every single injury and death caused by drunk driving is totally preventable. Although the proportion of crashes that are alcohol-related has dropped dramatically in recent decades, there are still far too many such preventable accidents. Despite this progress alcohol-impaired driving remains a serious national problem that tragically effects many victims annually. Saferide Syosset only has one goal which is to help avoid Syosset teens from getting into a car with a drunk driver. With a sober driver your odds of getting home safe are much better and you do not have to end up in jail or worse.
