Quotations:  Drive Safely!

Related Quotes      Alcohol      Driving      Safety      Integrity      Sympathy

Welcome to my page of quotes about drunk driving, texting and driving, driving under the influence, and all forms of distracted driving. In the late 1990s this was the first page of quotes on the Web about driving safely, which started out as mostly "don't drink and drive" and impaired driving quotes. I've since expanded it to include texting and cell phone use while driving (driving while intexticated, as they say) and other destructive decisions. PLEASE be responsible and cautious out there! So many lives are at stake. —tεᖇᖇ¡·g

No person should suffer the tragedy of losing someone as a result of drunk, drugged, or distracted driving, but for far too long the danger of impaired driving has robbed people of the comfort of knowing that when they or a loved one leaves home they will return safely. Impaired driving puts drivers, passengers, and pedestrians at risk, and each year it claims the lives of thousands of Americans. During National Impaired Driving Prevention Month, we recommit to preventing these incidents by acting responsibly and by promoting responsible behavior in those around us. Together, we can enhance public safety and work to ensure a happy, healthy life for all our people.... let us pledge to always drive sober and alert and to avoid distractions behind the wheel. ~Barack Obama, 2015 December 1st, quoted from The White House Office of the Press Secretary
