Drunk Driving Around the Holidays

Tomorrow, Thanksgiving Eve, is the the number one night of the year for people to go out and drink. It’s also the most popular night to drink and drive. Many townships will have do everything they can to curb the amount of drunk drivers on the road this Wednesday night including sobriety checkpoints and random late night stops.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the police officials around New Jersey are urging people to tie a red ribbon on their cars — reminding others about the dangers of drinking and driving

MADD is also the most notable backer of a bill that the governor is expected to sign into law this week that would seek a warrant to have a blood sample taken, measuring the blood alcohol content level of someone who refuses a breathalyzer test.

Others believe even more should be done like, more random sobriety check points, ability to pull someone over for no seatbelt and even requiring interlock ignitions so people would have to blow into BAC recording devices before their car would start.

  1. It has gotten to the point where my husband and I stay in on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving because of fear of other drivers. We hope with efforts from MADD, the governor, and Sober Sam that this night will be safer in the future. Thank you all and we will be picking up our red ribbons today.

  2. I couldn’t agree more, big holidays like this are not worth the trouble when it comes to driving. You need a taxi or something like this, dwi’s can ruin your life in a manner of speaking

  3. eventhough I burn most of my afternoon on the web playing online games like myspace poker or farmville, I still like to spend some spare time to peruse a number of websites here and there and I am seriously happy to report this recent post is actually kind of good quality and a whole good deal better than half the other poor quality trash I read today , anyhow i’m going to have fun with a few rounds of facebook poker

  4. Hello, this is one wonderful post! Thanks for posting this. I was looking for a site that has this kind of info. I just like very much farmville! Glad I found this one! I’ll be visiting here again for sure! 😉
