Tennessee to remember victims of impaired driving
December 7, 2010

Tennessee Governor's Highway Safety Office Director Kendell Poole will join state and local law enforcement officials on Wednesday, December 8 at the Bicentennial Mall State Map to remember 303 people killed in impaired driving crashes in Tennessee in 2009. The event will mark the beginning of National Drunk and Drugged Driving (3D) Prevention Month in Tennessee.

More than 2,000 crashes in Tennessee in 2009 involved a driver that tested positive for drugs. What's more, alcohol-related crashes involving a driver with a blood alcohol content level of .08 or higher ended the lives of 303 Tennesseans and 10,839 people nationwide in 2009. The Governor's Highway Safety Office and law enforcement across the state want to remind Tennesseans that driving impaired is never a good idea. If you drink this holiday, don't drive. It's not worth the risk of killing yourself or someone else: Booze It and Lose It.
