I was pleased to read the article in Wednesday's paper regarding the reduction in drunk driving in America.
Through my work in substance abuse prevention, I have learned that we should balance our message with concern and hope. Headlines such as "Drunk driving is down" are hopeful.
However, the concern remains that nearly 1 in 50 people reported driving drunk at least once a month. DUI crashes and fatalities are 100 percent preventable. If you drive or ride the roads of Bulloch County, then you are a stakeholder. I encourage all stakeholders to get involved. Thank you for your article.
