Special to the PRESS
This Holiday Season, TxDOT is focusing on the issue of impaired driving by encouraging people to save a life by making a plan to get home safely before the holiday festivities begin. The “Plan While You Can” impaired driving campaign encourages drivers to line up a sober ride before enjoying festivities where drinking may occur. The campaign will run through Jan. 1, 2016 and coincides with an enforcement period in which DWI patrols will be at increased capacity and out in full force looking for drunk drivers on Texas roadways.
Too often a designated driver is chosen during the evening and is often considered the “least drunk” person in the group. The designated driver should be a sober driver. Unfortunately in many of our Texas towns and cities, mass transit and/or taxi availability is limited – another important reason this campaign message is about planning ahead and reminding our fellow Texans to “Plan While You Can.”
