The Pennsylvania Driving Under the Influence Association and the Blair DUI Task Force reminds drivers and boaters that celebrating Independence Day with family and friends should mean an enjoyable time is shared by everyone, not time spent in handcuffs, the hospital or worse - the morgue.
Blair County will be participating in the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign in the effort to focus on keeping families safe from impaired drivers surrounding the 2013 Independence Day travel and boating holiday period.
Impaired driving-related crashes and fatalities from the period of Friday, June 29 through Sunday, July 8 reveal that 355 impairment-related crashes occurred resulting in twenty persons needlessly losing their lives.
Driving under the influence goes beyond alcoholic beverage consumption; driving impaired is under the influence of any substance that impairs a person's ability to operate a motor vehicle, motorcycle or boat safely which can result in a DUI or BUI (boating under the influence) arrest.
On Commonwealth waterways during the short boating season of 2012, PA Fish & Boat Commission waterways conservation officers arrested 60 persons for boating under the influence (BUI) which, like DUI, is a criminal offense.
Crashes involving impaired persons are entirely preventable. Motorists and boaters should keep their families, themselves, and other motorists safe by designating a driver or not driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
