There are a lot of Holiday TV shows and movies to catch up every December, and when you’re curled up in front of the fire, your choice of flick is probably It’s a Wonderful Life or White Christmas. But there are a few other videos you should watch this holiday season: the type that can save your life if you take their message to heart.
Every year organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), Liquor Control, and local law enforcement create new public service announcements designed to educate the public about the dangers of drunk driving. Here are just a few PSA’s with a strong message about drunk driving.
Buzzed driving is drunk driving
The Oregon Liquor Commission wants you to know that buzzed driving can be just as dangerous as drunk driving. They’ve put together a PSA that’s full of festive music, but the message is one that might make you think twice about having one drink before getting behind the wheel.
This one has been around for so long it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t seen it, but this MADD PSA still makes an impact on anyone who watches it.
Newport Beach Police Holiday PSA
Who can resist a play on Santa Claus is Coming to Town, complete with lyrics about the dangers of drinking and driving? The Newport Beach PD is singing carols designed to make you think about drinking and driving, and with over 30,000 views on Youtube, it seems like their message is getting across.
Every year thousands of people across the United States are killed by drunk drivers during the holiday season. Don’t ruin the holiday season for everyone you love by drinking and driving. Call a cab, call a sober driver, or just stay home if you’d like to drink and you’ll get through the holiday safe and sound.
