December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month

Dear Constituents:

It is December, and the Holidays are upon us yet again. While the end of the year is a festive time, full of celebration and cheer, it is still necessary for everyone to remain alert, especially as people travel near and far to celebrate the holidays with loved ones. For this reason, the month of December has been designated National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month.

Every day, people put themselves and other motorists in danger on roadways when they drive after consuming alcohol or after using legal or illegal drugs. During this holiday season, we should all be observant in an effort to protect our families, friends, and neighbors from drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
