PU Community Education Section: The Drive Sober Video

statistics of those who admitted DUI

The Drive Sober video is one of the first of many videos, infographics, and articles that Pulse Uniform plans to feature in their community education section. This is a part of their new call of  Educating Communities. Changing Lives.

The video tackles the issue of Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), or simply drunk driving. These terms describe the crime of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The data clearly shows how big the issue is even if the numbers have been dwindling over the years. It is still important to educate people about what driving under the influence can do, how much damage it can create not only to the persons involved but to the rest of the family and the community.

It is not just a matter of knowing the number of vehicular accidents occurring everyday or the percentage of fatalities due to DWI/DUI. It is important to know that the government is spending for the damages, operations costs and other related expenses for DUI more than twice their budget for Education, which shows us two things:

  1. The government should be spending more for education especially since
  2. DWI and DUI is a danger that is avoidable and preventable.

Driving while intoxicated or drunk poses a danger not only to the drivers but more so to others who have the misfortune to be driving at the same time as the drunk drivers. Educating people against drunk driving remains important and a must to lower and eventually end this serious problem. Like other social problems, drunk driving resists simple solutions, still the community needs to know that there are ways to avoid such situations and actions that can contribute to the reduction of the problem. People need to take a stand against driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence.

The Drive Sober video clearly shows the statistics of driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs.

If you’re drinking, don’t get behind the wheel and take a chance on being arrested or hurting yourself or someone else.
