The use of alcohol and other drugs is self-defeating.
Driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs endangers lives.
Distracted driving endangers lives.
We endanger our lives when we ride in a vehicle with a reckless or drug affected driver.
Our actions and attitudes have a significant effect on creating positive change.
