UNDERAGE DRINKING - MYTHS VERSUS FACTS

 

According to NHTSA, between 2012 and 2019, 26,004 people died in crashes involving a distracted driver. While fatalities from motor-vehicle crashes decreased slightly from 2018, distraction-related fatalities increased by 10%. NHTSA also reported that the number of deaths linked to driver distraction was 3,142 nationwide, or almost 9% of all fatalities in 2019. This represents a 10% increase over the year 2018, or 284 more fatalities. The distraction figure was the largest increase in causes of traffic deaths reported for 2019.


Millennials and Gen Z are the most distracted drivers, often using their cell phones to talk, text, and scroll through social media while behind the wheel. According to NHTSA research from 2017, young drivers 16 to 24 years old have been observed using handheld electronic devices while driving at higher rates than older drivers since 2007. In 2019, 9% of people killed in teen (15-19) driving crashes died when the teen drivers were distracted at the time of the crash.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over (drivers)

Ride Sober or Get Pulled Over (motorcyclists)

 

Key insights + statistics

  • More than a quarter (25%) of all traffic-related deaths are the direct result of alcohol impairment (NHTSA).

  • 29 people die each day in automobile accidents that involve a drunk driver (CDC).

  • Around 800 people per day are injured in a drunk driving crash and 30 people die (NHTSA). 

  • If a driver's BAC is above 0.10, they are seven times more likely than a sober driver to be involved in a fatal accident (VeryWellMind).

  • Federal data show young people between the ages of 21 and 24 account for one-third of drivers arrested for DWI (BJS).

 

MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHES ARE THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN VETERANS IN THE EARLY YEARS AFTER RETURNING FROM DEPLOYMENT - IF OUT DRINKING ALWAYS CALL A TAXI, UBER, LYFT OR FRIEND AND NEVER DRIVE IMPAIRED

 

General Rules:
Don’t drink and drive.

Don’t ride with a drunk driver.

Always wear your seat belt—driving, in the passenger seat, or in the back seat.

If you ride a motorcycle always wear a helmet and ride sober.

Mile for mile, your risk of a fatal crash is about 35 times higher on your motorcycle than in your car.

RUN FOR THE WALL 25TH ANNIVERSARY
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!

It was a nice warm Wednesday, morning, when 1,500 motorcycles and support vehicles rolled out of a parking lot in Rancho Cucamonga, California for a 10 day trip to Washington DC. Their journey is not a fun one but one to bring attention to the tragedy of war and our MIA/POW veterans.

From the shirt I am proudly wearing it states “Freedom Is Not Free” and that is important for everyone to remember. Lets say a prayer for these brave veterans on this ride/journey to Washington DC. For many men and women this is a yearly event they do proudly.

View video below of first group that left, this is the most organized event I have ever attended and probably the most challenging for those behind the scenes who make this Run For The Wall a success, going on 26 years now. Just a great group of people we can all support by donating or buying something at their website. (View More Pictures Click Here)
