Drunk Driving Campaign Raises Awareness

A new initiative seeks to raise awareness about drunk driving this week. From August 21 to September 7, New Jersey drivers in some areas will go through sobriety checkpoints and roving patrols. This is part of the national campaign to "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over." The goal is to reinforce the message that drinking and driving is highly dangerous and those convicted will receive harsh punishment.

Memorial Day Weekend Travel Safety

Every holiday weekend means an increase in traffic and the burdens that come along with it. This Memorial Day weekend will likely see an increase in car accidents due to congestion, visitors and the unsafe behaviors that attend many holidays. After a very difficult winter, many people will be looking to head to the beach to finally enjoy the return of warmer weather. If you are among the people traveling this weekend, please be careful. Holidays are no excuse to drive drunk, drive while distracted or generally engage in dangerous behavior.

Stay Safe On St. Patrick's Day

Do you have big plans for March 17 this year? Are you planning on hitting the bars or going to a party? Do you plan to drink green beer or maybe something stronger? While St. Patrick's Day does not have to involve alcohol, in the United States the holiday is often celebrated by drinking. The Department of Transportation has issued a reminder for drivers that St. Patrick's Day is a prime time for drinking and driving accidents. Drivers are advised to plan ahead to avoid being involved in an accident.

New List Of Safety Priorities From NTSB

Every year, the National Transportation Safety Board releases a list of the top 10 safety issues it wants to emphasize in the coming year. The list for 2015 was released this week and contains several issues that impact drivers on a regular basis. The "Most Wanted" list includes two entries that contribute to thousands of traffic deaths each year. The first and most pressing is the problem of substance-impaired driving. The second is the issue of commercial trucking safety.

Ignition Interlock Laws And Traffic Deaths

An ignition interlock device forces a driver to blow into a machine similar to a breathalyzer before starting the car. If the driver has alcohol on his or her breath, the car's ignition will not work. These devices are intended to help prevent drunk driving deaths as evidence has shown that a person who is convicted of DUI faces a high probability of driving drunk again.
