Solutions To Getting Home When You Are Drunk

This is how drunk driving could end up becoming a nightmare.

Ok so you are at the bar, just in the mood to have a couple of good celebratory beers. You look around and everyone is drinking too. You’re getting a little tipsy and you’re thinking “That’s right man, I am not going to stop drinking!” After chugging down another few beers, you end up all quiet and silent thinking exactly how on earth you are going to drive home. Everything seems to be moving fast and you can barely walk. Your friends tell you to stay, but you are adamant on driving home yourself.

Now is the part where you drive. You back up and BAM! There goes the tail light of the car parked behind you. You panic and start speeding down the block. You keep thinking just to stay awake and all of a sudden out of nowhere you see a car heading for you, you forget to turn the headlights on and BAM you slam into it. You panic even more, and start speeding, there are cops on your tail and there comes a point where you get caught. Congratulations, you are officially a drunk driver!

How To Avoid This?

We understand and know the psychological effects behind drunk driving. Alcohol is notorious to impair your senses and your motor skills. When people do tell you to take a cab when you are intoxicated, you tend to be aggressive and because your senses are impaired you feel like you can do absolutely anything.

We, at Saferides, have been in the transportation business for a substantial amount of time that is one reason we are able to get Limousine companies to gives us vehicles at extremely low rates. Another reason is that the volume in which we carry out our business is substantial, so automatically we are able to get Limos at really low rates and we pass those low rates on to our customers so ultimately they can save and benefit from our services, especially for parties and pick and drops.

Don’t Drink and Drive!

A good party is always irresistible. Why won’t it be? There’s plenty of food, so many friends, and there is alcohol! As appealing as it may sound, drinking to a certain extent in parties is always fun, but driving while you are drunk can result in horrific consequences. Victims of drunk driving incidents by intoxicated drivers often get their lives torn apart at the expense of another person’s negligent and irresponsible actions.

Don’t Drink and Drive!The actions of drunk drivers can lead to a number of accidents in a number of ways.

First of all, it is commonly known that drunk drivers display aggressive and confrontational behavior, especially behind the wheel. That is because their ability to judge speed and distance is impaired. This results in hazardous driving behaviors such as over speeding, failure to use turn signals, failure to realize how distant or close the other car is, and poor visibility results in failure to see pedestrians. Not only this, there are other countless ways in which drunk driving can result in horrific consequences.

One of the largest reasons for drunk driving is the failure to realize the intensity of your impairment, after getting highly intoxicated. Alcohol slows your reflexes and fools you into believing you are still good to drive.

Let’s take a look at some statistics that are bound to stop you from driving drunk:

  • Every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunken driving accident or crash

  • Drunk driving costs each adult in the United States almost $500 per year on DUI’s

  • An average drunk driver has driven drunk almost 80 times before their first arrest

  • The rate of drunk driving is the highest between 21 and 25 year olds

  • Each day almost 28 people die in America as a result of drunk driving car accidents

  • In 2011, an estimated 226 children were killed in drunk driving incidents, out of which 122 were in the car with the drunk driver

  • About one-third of all drunk drivers arrested are repeat offenders

Don’t Drink and Drive!It is always advisable to at least let the alcohol wear off before you get behind the wheel, and according to a scientific study neither strong coffee nor a cold shower can wear off the effects of alcohol, only time can. When you go to parties which involve alcohol, simply take it slow if you are going to drive home.

Don’t be pressurized by friends or peers who push you to go for more drinks or beers. It is always in your favor and best interest that you know and set your limits. Remember, it is better to be careful than being regretful later.

Welcome To Our Reality

After months and months of reading about drunk and distracted driving in the news, and noticing how little general public cares about this until it hits close to home, Safe Rides Unlimited has decided to launch this blog where we can keep our readers up to date on the latest news, laws, and stories from those involved in such tragedies.

It seems the laws are getting more lenient than ever about drunk driving, latest one being the kid who killed 4 innocent people and got off because I’m guessing his parents were connected and somehow the attorneys were able to get the kid of on a defense based on “Affluenza”.  So let me get this straight, if you are a rich kid who is used to having what he or she wants, can go around killing people and not be held responsible cause he wasn’t taught limits by the parents?

Well than in my opinion the parents should be held responsible for not teaching their kid the basic morals and respect of life!  I remember before I started safe rides I lost 2 friends in a drunk driving accident and I was distraught for months, one minute we were planning on meeting at a diner on RT 3 and how we were going to follow each others cars and the next watching them lose control, get in an accident and die.

At that point in my life i decided to leave a lucrative career at my families wall street firm and dedicate my life to reducing drunk driving in a practical way.  I started Safe Rides Unlimited with the goal of making a real difference and not just talking about how its bad.  I came to conclusion that unless people are presented with real Transportation alternatives they have no choice but to drive drunk cause of the way the society is setup, alcohol is a HUGE part of American lifestyle, so just saying dont drive drunk wont solve the problem.  I exposed myself to the tragedies and met with those affected, the one memory i will never forget is meeting with the parents of a young girl not even in her teens.  She was hit by a drunk driver coming back from a football game, crossed over to the wrong side of the road and hit that innocent girl, putting her in a wheel chair for life, she couldn’t even breathe on her own or feed herself.  I will never forget that image cause even as a tough guy i couldn’t help but tear up.  The accident was over in seconds but the rest of her life, her families life was changed forever.  The worst part is when something like this happens people get real worked up and offer help initially but than forget about it and move on with their own lives.  who is to help the victims on the long term?

The point I’m making is the effects of drunk driving are not limited to the accident.  it ruins families, think about your child that you raised from birth and is your everything getting hit by a drunk driver.  i know my life would be destroyed and i would never be able to come out of the depression for a second time.

I encourage everyone to come share their stories with us so we can make them available to the masses and hopefully causing some change and making a difference in reducing drunk and distracted driving.
