We should all Think Twice® about drinking and driving but each year over a MILLION people are arrested for DUI charges in the United States. As a response to this nationwide problem state legislatures have increased mandatory minimum penalties, especially for repeat DUI offenders. Alcohol serving establishments and their employees are also responsible for increasingly stringent alcohol serving rules and businesses that are cited for public safety violations risk suspension and possible revocation of their liquor license.
The Think Twice mission is to reduce the DUI rate by helping people make more informed decisions. It is common to hear people say they, “feel” they are below 0.08% BAC, but for most of us, it is difficult to know for sure. If a single-use, reliable pass/fail DUI test is made widely available to the public we have given everyone an opportunity to think twice about drinking and driving.
Join us to end drunk driving and the needless loss of life by taking the #ithinktwice pledge.
