Letter to the Editor

“Make It Standard”:
Dear Editor,

It’s the time of year for New Year’s resolutions. As you make your list for 2006, we encourage you to make sure “drink responsibly and use a designated driver” stays top of mind.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of drunk-driving fatalities has decreased by 39 percent since 1982. In a recent nationwide poll conducted by Data Development Corp., 90 percent of adults agree that promoting the use of designated drivers is an excellent or good way to help reduce the problem of drunk driving.

We at A&B Distributing Company, the local distributor of Anheuser-Busch products, agree. And we want to do all we can to help. That’s why we are providing a website — www.designateddriver.com — where adults can get information about designated driver programs and send an electronic “thank you” to their favorite designated drivers.

Celebrate responsibly, “Make it Standard” practice to use a designated driver and have a safe and happy New Year!

Sincerely,
Joan Lunsford
