Public service announcements and anti-drunk driving campaigns can be emotional, informative or even a bit quirky. With just a few words of an anti-drunk driving slogan, we’re reminded of the dangers of driving while drunk, buzzed or even while distracted by a text message. Since an anti-drunk driving slogan can become just as memorable as the chorus to a favorite song, most of us can recall at least one slogan from campaigns in the past, or even during today’s awareness campaigns. Instead of a drinking game that encourages more shots of tequila or chugging of beer, let’s see who knows the most slogans in your group. Ready? Go!
How many of these anti-drunk driving slogans do you remember?
- Buzzed driving is drunk driving.
- Don’t drink and drive, arrive alive.
- Driving hammered will get you nailed.
- Drunk driving is a killer disease.
- A tree never hits an automobile except in self-defense.
- Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.
- Rethink your third drink.
- The designated driver … a friend for life!
- Drive hammered. Get slammered.
- U Drink, U Drive, U Lose.
Since drinking games contribute to binge drinking, which can quickly lead to drunk driving, it only makes sense to change the game and play it sober. In 2012, there were 290,000 injuries from drunk driving accidents in the U.S. Each day, 28 people are killed by drunk drivers. While these statistics are grim, drunk driving is a choice that people make – and it is one that is easily preventable. Instead of taking those shots, or guzzling that beer, just remember the countless people who are affected by irresponsible drinkers each day and make a commitment to staying sober. Anti-drunk driving slogans, while quirky at times, are all reminders of how long we have been affected by drunk drivers, and how far we still have to go to keep our streets safe.
