If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact your local law enforcement. "With the help of our safety partners we're looking at a technological path forward to create a world where there is no more drunk driving". Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that any decision to drive while impaired can have serious and even deadly consequences.

The legal blood alcohol limit for drivers in MS is.08 percent blood alcohol, which can range from three-to-five drinks, depending on a person's weight.

"Although drunken driving is 100 percent preventable, on average someone is killed or injured in an alcohol-related crash in Wisconsin every three hours", said Westby Officer Matt White.

"Each year, too many lives are lost to drunk driving, particularly around the holiday season".

Police noted that drunken or drug-impaired driving offenders often serve jail time, lose their driver's licenses, are charged higher insurance rates and pay dozens of other unanticipated expenses ranging from attorney fees, court costs, vehicle towing and repairs, and lost wages. "We want to keep a lid on the number of injuries and deaths caused by drunk driving".

Toure sets sights on Champions League return after convincing Guardiola
Vincent Kompany has been ruled out through injury for a few more weeks and I really fear for the City defence for the time being. Fernandinho gave some defensive help as well while Raheem Sterling and Jesus Navas tracked back from the wing.

To that end, the DOT has a free Zero In Wisconsin Drive Sober mobile app, www.zeroinwisconsin.gov/drivesober/, which includes a "find a ride" feature, a blood alcohol estimator, a designated driver selector and interactive games to help determine if a driver should relinquish the vehicle keys to someone else.

Brown-Forman is offering to help drivers who have been drinking find a safe way home this holiday season.

If you become intoxicated, do not drive for any reason. Don't let people who have been drinking get behind the wheel - take their keys and arrange a safe way for them to get home. Your actions may save someone's life, and inaction could cost a life. Never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The goal of the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" effort is to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving through a combination of high-visibility enforcement and public education, according to a press release.
