New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 29, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand it Abraham Lincoln Have a cheerful holiday, driver sober, says Tom Loeffler, below O Hvrald-Zeitung pinions Dave Kramer, Editor and General Manager Susan Haire, Managing Editor lf; H, 25 years ago today FOR THE NEW VEAR, I RESOLVE TO QUIT SMOKING, AND ALSO SAVE £5% OF EACH PAYCHECK. 15 years ago today.. THIS YEAR I WILL REALLY QUIT SMOKING AND ALSO SAVE 15% OF EACH PAYCHECK I Today. • I THIS YEAR I ABSOLUTELY, Positively resolve to QUIT SMOKING, AND THEN MAYBE I CAN SCRAPE UP ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A NEW SHIRT I Tom Loeffler Holiday cheer can be soured by drunk drivers The holiday lights are on all over Texas, and the spirit of the season is here But good holiday cheer can sour tragically when too much cheer leads to drunk driving One look at statwide and national statistics for alcohol related accidents and deaths should sober everyone up pretty quickly and make you think before you drink and drive this holiday season. Last year in Texas, thee were 33.0tK> drunk driving accidents, more than I,OOO people wee killed In those accidents More than LIN serious injuries also resulted In the last IO years. 250.(nxi Americans died in alchohol-related crashes That amounts to an average of 25 OOO alcohol-related deaths each year or IM each week. 71 each day and one every 20 minutes Those are pretty touch odds to beat. Although greater citizen awareness and tougher law enforce ment campaigns against drunk driving have led to a slight decline in the percentage of alcohol related deaths across Texas this year, only your responsible actions and good judge ment will prevent you or one of your loved ones from becoming another traffic statistic If you plan a get-together over the holidays, here are a few common sense steps you can take to ensure a safer, happier season for everyone Hire a professional bartender or if you’re pouring, keep the alcohol at a reasonable balance with other ingredients Serve drinks at a reasonalbe pace Instead of ‘ pushing’’ them on guests -When a guest says “no thanks.” don't Insist Also learn to say “No!” when a drunk friend asks for another drink -If you are serving liquor, always serve food as well Food slows the rate at which the body absorbs alcohol. Serve non alcoholic drinks One of every three adults chooses not to drink at all. Don't rely on coffee to sober anybody up The only way to make somebody sober is allow time for the body to metabolize the alcohol lf some guests are too intoxicated to drive, offer them a ride home, have someone give them a lift, or pull out the sofa and have them spend the night Friends don't let friends drive drunk Finally, the legal drinking age in Texas goes up to 21 on Jan I, but don’t let the new age limit fool you into believing your kids are safe on the road Sixteen to 24 yoarp-oids make up only 20 percent of licensed drivers nationwide, yety they are involved in 43 percent of all alcohol-related crashes. Don't let your kids get behind the wheel if they're intoxicated. This is truly the season to be jolly, and with a minimum of effort and a little common sense we can keep it that way. I wish all of vou in the 21st District a happy holiday season!
