Don't let this happen to you.

This vehicle was the casualty of drinking and driving.

College is not an excuse to abuse drugs and alcohol. Changing the Culture.

Alcohol:

Moderate use (2-3 drinks) can result in a loss of motor coordination for up to 12 to 18 hours after drinking.

Alcohol consumption by college students is linked to at least 1,400 student deaths and 500,000 unintentional injuries each year.

Alcohol does not relieve depression; it makes it worse.

One third of suicides are associated with alcohol misuse.

Drugs

According to the U.S. Department of Education, 35% of the new freshmen population will comprise the bulk of new drug users and potential drug abusers on college campuses.

43% of the overall college student body has either tried or is currently addicted to at least one of the top ten drugs found on college campuses.

Although most college students use prescription drugs properly, about one in four people aged 18 to 20 report using these medications non-medically at least once in their lives.

Non-medical use of pain relievers is on the rise among college-age youth.

 

Texting and Driving

Need a reason to park your cell phone while driving?

You are 23 times more likely to crash if you text while driving.

In Texas in 2011, cell-phone use was the contributing factor in 3,147 crashes and 40 fatal crashes.

If you're under 18, it's against the law to use a cell phone while driving.

Texans are fed up with the swerving, skidding, red light running, and crashing by drivers looking at their phones instead of the road. With nearly 6,000 people in our country killed each year due to distracted driving, there's only one thing to do: Hang up and drive.

Personal Safety:
