VOW TO DRIVE SOBER
A DUI at any age will mess with your LIFE!
The penalties for drunk driving are much HARSHER for teens.
More JAIL TIME, HIGHER FINES, LONGER LICENSE SUSPENSION.
The list goes on! Think it won’t happen to you? THINK AGAIN!
DRINKING AND DRIVING TAKES INNOCENT LIVES.
Nearly 30 People Die Daily from Drunk Driving! That is 1 person every 53 minutes!
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in 15-20 year olds.
Approximately 25% involve an underage drinking driver!
Kids who start drinking young are 7 times more likely to be involved in an alcohol related crash!

You’re legally intoxicated when a BAC of >.08.
Do you know that it can take up to 6 hours for your BAC to drop from >.08 to .00?
