Halloween Impaired Driving Prevention - October 31, 2020
Halloween is meant to be scary, but not when it comes to driving. Yet, when it comes to impaired driving, Halloween can turn into a horror fest.
The NHTSA gov wants you to remember that drug-impaired driving is illegal, period.  This Halloween, if you feel different, You drive different. #drugsimpairdriving.
  • Save the illegal driving for the witches on broomsticks! Never drive under the influence of an impaired substance--this Halloween, and every day.  
  • Coming back from the dead only happens in movies. Drug-impaired driving is deadly, and it can kill the driver, passengers and other road users.
  • Help spread the message: If You Feel Different, You Drive Different.
Keep trick-or-treat safe for the kids (and the adults!)
