Perfect Gift Could Be A Designated Driver

Writer urges people to help other enjoy the holiday season by using a designated driver


Dear Editor:

During the holiday season, it can be difficult to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. However, there is one gift that any adult would love to receive this year: a designated driver. Help your friends and family members enjoy the great times this holiday season by getting them home safe and sound. You also can encourage them to join you – and the Nation of Responsible Drinkers – in pledging to drink responsibly and use a designated driver at NationOfResponsibleDrinkers.com.

Fortunately, thanks to the help of designated drivers and increased law enforcement, the nation has made significant progress in preventing drunk driving. According to the latest government data, drunk-driving fatalities fell to their lowest level since alcohol record-keeping began in 1982 (a 52 percent decline from 1982 to 2010).* 

While that’s great news, there’s always more work to be done. That’s why Dana Distributors and Budweiser have partnered to support the seasonal “Alert Cab’ programs.

All of us at Dana Distributors, Inc. wish our friends and neighbors in the Hudson Valley a safe and happy holiday. Together, we can help keep our roads safe.
