Of the Washington metropolitan area’s 351 total traffic fatalities last year, 33% (116) of these roadway deaths were alcohol and or drug-related. The Washington Regional Alcohol Program’s annual effort to keep our community’s streets safer throughout the holiday season starts today. The Holiday SoberRide program provides free taxi rides home throughout the DC metro area from 10 p.m through 6 a.m. The program ends at 6 a.m. on New Year’s Day. People 21 and over should call 800-200-8294 or press #8294 from an AT&T wireless phone.
The statistic is shocking, 116 deaths in our community last year as a result of drunk or impaired driving. We need to do everything we can to educate people about the dangers and the safe alternatives.
