Drunk Driving is Killing Our Kids
Inspired by a recent blog post that many of you read and shared, we wanted to continue sharing information on how drunk driving is impacting the children of Indiana, and some of the shocking statistics that caught us off guard as we researched the issue.
Did you know that over 50% of the children who are killed in drunk driving accidents are IN THE CAR with the driver who is under the influence? The statistics are terrifying and have to be changed. Please help us spread the word about these stats, and the all the ways you and your loved ones can help to fight back against this trend.
Most importantly, if you are planning to drink, make travel arrangements ahead of time. Don’t take the risk thinking “it won’t happen to me” when it comes to an accident. One alcohol related crash happens every 53 minutes in the United States, and if you are drinking and get behind the wheel of a car, the next accident could be yours. Keep yourself safe, keep our roadways safe, and keep our children safe.
