Be Spooky, Yet Safe This Halloween: MDOT Reminding You Not to Drink and Drive

JACKSON, MISS– The Mississippi Department of Corrections wants to remind you that “buzzed driving” is still “drunk-driving.” 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 43 percent of all people killed in motor vehicle crashes on Halloween night from 2009 to 2013 were in crashes involving a drunk driver.

Of course, these deaths can be preventable, if you plan your party well. Have a designated driver if you’re going to a party where  you know you’ll drink. If you’re throwing the party, make sure to have a place ready in case someone needs to stay for the night if they’ve had a drink. In addition, watch out for trick-or-treaters, and buckle up that seat belt.
