Curbing DWI Accidents and Injuries: Texas Residents Urged to Obtain a Summer P.A.S.S.

According to information gathered from a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration survey, more than 40 percent of drivers surveyed were under the impression it was safe to drive after consuming in excess of three drinks within a two-hour period. Studies have shown that is clearly not true, as even one drink can potentially impair your reflexes, awareness and overall driving ability. Summer months are some of the most deadly when it comes to DWI-related accidents. Accidents caused by drunk drivers in the state of Texas commonly increase at least 10% during the summer months. Between June 1 and August 31 of 2012, Texas saw more than 6,500 alcohol-related traffic accidents which resulted in close to 2,500 serious injuries and over 300 fatalities.

In an effort to curb DWI accidents, injuries and deaths this summer the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has begun a campaign to urge residents to obtain a Summer P.A.S.S. (Person Appointed to Stay Sober). The program is geared to promote that planning for summer activities should also involve having a sober driver on hand should any alcohol and/or drinking be involved. By having a Summer P.A.S.S. numerous accidents, fatal injuries and arrests could be easily avoided.
