Through the Drive Sober. No Regrets. statewide, impaired driving campaign, TxDOT reminds drivers celebrating the Labor Day holiday to always plan for a sober ride home before they start drinking. Even one life lost is too many.
Remember, a designated driver is not one who is “least drunk” but should be a sober driver who has not consumed any amount of alcohol. You can help to make this Labor Day holiday one without regrets. Plan for a sober ride home by a friend or family member, rideshare service or mass transit. Drivers under the influence of alcohol could face up to $17,000 in fines and fees, jail time, and could lose their license.
Visit Faces of Drunk Driving to learn about the consequences of driving impaired and tips to finding a sober ride home. Follow the hashtag #DriveSoberNoRegrets to keep up with the campaign on social media.
