Driving this Holiday Season?
Did you know….
It is against the law in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to drive a vehicle while legally drunk, with a blood alcohol concentration BAC of .08 or higher. All states also prohibit anyone under the age of 21 to drink and to drive with any BAC in their system.
To ensure your safety on the roads this holiday season see the following TxDOT campaign resources:
NHTSA's SafeRide App on Android and Apple devices
