Impaired Driving

Be here tomorrow. Make a plan for a sober ride home.

The future looks better with you in it.

No one is safe when a person chooses to drive under the influence — no one. We all have a commitment to each other to drive sober. And when it comes to family and friends, let’s make sure they find a safe ride home, too. Safe roads are a shared responsibility, let’s look out for each other.

“Before I go out with friends, I plan ahead to get a safe ride home, whether I hop in a friend’s car or call a rideshare service. I want to be here tomorrow — and every day after that.”

— Adam, 23, Lewiston

When I see friends drink too much, I find the courage to help them get a safe ride home. A few moments of feeling uncomfortable is worth it to keep my friends from doing something they’ll regret. I try to be the friend I’d want if my judgement was impaired.
