Do Your Kids Ride with Drinking Drivers?

More than 25% of American kids have ridden at least in the last 30 days with a drinking driver.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports from their national survey of risky behavior, that during the 30 days before the survey, 28.3% of students nationwide had ridden one or more times in a car or other vehicle driven by someone who had been drinking alcohol.

PositiveTip: Talk to your kids about riding in a car with someone who has been drinking--and know who they will be with. It could be mean the difference between life and death.
