Is there a national drugged or drunk driving month?

December is National Drugged Driving Month

Recently, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control announced that December would be their National Drugged Driving Month. This is in an effort to bring more attention to the problem of drugged driving. Here are a few facts about drugged driving:

• Drugs other than alcohol are involved in almost 19% of motor vehicle driver deaths
• Often, these drugs (such as marijuana or cocaine) are used in combination with alcohol

Hopefully, the publicity will attract far more attention to drugged driving and reinforce the current awareness programs in effect across the country. And, as with drunk driving, electing a designated driver can help.
