According to a recent survey, 60% of Americans report alcohol is part of their family traditions around the holidays. Its more encouraging to know that 67% of Americans plan ahead for transportation when hosting/attending holiday parties. And, given that we know that parents are the leading influence over their kid’s decision to drink – or not to drink – alcohol, we hope parents who include alcohol in family traditions will talk to their kids about the dangers of underage drinking
The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (FAAR) leads the fight against drunk driving in the United States of America. Since its founding in 1991, The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility has lent its support to a number of policies and programs in the national effort to reduce drunk driving fatalities; administrative license revocation, zero tolerance for drunk drivers under 21, tougher penalties for DUI test refusal and .08 Blood Alcohol Concentration as part of a comprehensive plan to fight drunk driving.
FAAR have published this infographic to remind Americans on the risk of alcohol during the festive period. It is indeed a reminder for the rest of the world.
