Did you know April is Alcohol Awareness Month? For those of you in High School, prom season is in full swing with graduation fast approaching. And for teen and college folk, this is the tail end of spring break too – also known for a little hard partying. If you’re over 21 and choose to drink, please do so responsibly and in moderation. A Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .08 is the legal limit to drive, but as your BAC increases, your ability to make smart choices decreases – especially as it relates to your personal safety and maintaining a safe environment for you and your friends.
COOL TOOL ALERT: Go to www.b4udrink.mobi from your cell phone to estimate your BAC!
The Century Council (a Safe Spring Break Tour sponsor) offers some sweet resources and information about drunk driving and underage drinking. Also search their database to find programs to fight underage drinking in your community or add a program of your own. Yes, you CAN make a difference!
So do me a favor – enjoy life and all these good times and warm weather to the fullest, but make responsible decisions regarding alcohol. Please? OK. Thanks.
