Pass The Keys
Tailgating this football season? Then do yourself and everyone else a favor and Pass the Keys! Designate a driver BEFORE the party gets started, have a plan for getting people home safely if you’re the host, and always buckle up—it’s still the best defense against drunk drivers. Nearly 10,000 people lose their lives each year in alcohol-related crashes and sports fans should be aware that the Oregon State Police (OSP), local sheriffs and police departments plan to have extra traffic patrols on game days to keep the roads safe. This football season, Pass The Keys and designate a driver. A message from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, OSP, Oregon Department of Transportation…and every other driver on the road.
