I always make it a point to use the machine any time we go to a bar that has a breathalyzer vending machine. It's a fun way to keep myself in check. I think it creates awareness which prompts people to talk about the laws pertaining to drinking and driving, says patron Brittany Heggen of Atlanta.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2015 on average one American was killed in a drunk driving crash every 51 minutes. Alcohol-impaired traffic fatalities often spike on holidays and popular drinking days, like Super Bowl Sunday. NHTSA's Fans Don't Let Fans Drive Drunk campaign encourages people to make plans ahead of time for a safe ride home from a party:
Check out NHTSA's SaferRide app, which can connect you to a local cab company or with a sober friend.
Sign-up for a ride-sharing service, like Uber or Lyft, before heading out for the night.
Name designated drivers as your party's MVPs for helping to get people home safely.
