Grand Futures gives tips on preventing drunk driving

Grand Futures Prevention Coalition would like to remind readers that impaired driving crashes killed 10,228 people in 2010, accounting for 31 percent of all traffic-related deaths in the U.S., according to a news release.

Grand Futures is encouraging people to take a few steps to ensure their celebrations don’t end in tragedy.

■ Designate a sober driver before the festivities begin.

■ If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving. If you are impaired, find another way home: Use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member or use public transportation.

■ If someone you know is drinking, do not let him or her get behind the wheel. If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement by calling 970-879-1090.
