March 17, 2020 - Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving

If you’re heading out to a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, make sure you have more than just the luck o’ the Irish on your side. These celebrations are one of the biggest drinking nights of the year, and this, unfortunately, means more drunk drivers on the roads. Drunk driving accounts for nearly one-third of vehicle-related fatalities in the United States.

This St. Patrick’s Day weekend, remember: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. If you plan to go out and enjoy the evening with alcohol, make sure you refrain from driving. Review these facts and share the word about the dangers of drunk driving so you can continue merry-making for all the St. Paddy’s Days to come.

Vehicle Safety Recalls Week / March 2-6, 2020

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) manages vehicle safety recalls, sets vehicle safety 

standards, and requires automakers to recall vehicles that have safety defects or do not meet those standards. 

If your car has a recall, get it fixed - it could save a life.

Also, check your vehicle for recalls at least twice a year, and sign up to receive alerts about new recalls

Recalls Campaign Research Report
NHTSA wants to increase awareness and utilization of its website and has developed an online
campaign to help build awareness and usage among the general population, including the auto-buying public
and select target audiences.
