    Honestly, this year I have no idea
    Barca, Bayern and Real are not as impressive as in previous years... I can see Atletico, Juve, Borussia, or even PSG or Arsenal winning CL.

    Drinking and Driving Facts and Solutions

    Drinking and driving while either impaired or drunk is dangerous. Drivers with high blood alcohol concentration (BAC) are at much greater risk of traffic crashes. This means more injuries and deaths.

    Overview
    I. The Problem
    II. Facts
    III.Possible Preventions
    IV. Protect Yourself
    V. Protect Others
    VI. Often Overlooked
    I. The Drinking and Driving Problem

    Every single injury and death caused by drunk driving is totally preventable. The proportion of alcohol-impaired drinking and driving crashes has dropped greatly over time. But there are still far too many such crashes. So in spite of great progress, alcohol-impaired drinking and driving remains a serious problem. It tragically effects many victims and their families annually.

    It’s easy to forget that dry statistics represent real people. Therefore, this page is dedicated to the memory of one randomly-selected victim of a drunk driver. She is young Holli Crockett.

    II. Facts about Drinking and Driving.

    drinking and drivingMost drivers who have had something to drink have a low BAC. Few have fatal crashes. Only a few drivers have BACs higher than 0.15. Yet a much, much higher proportion have fatal crashes. The average BAC among fatally injured drinking drivers is about twice the legal limit.(1)

    The risk of death from drinking and driving escalates with BAC. And it does so dramatically

    High BAC drivers tend to be male and aged 25-35. Also, they often have a history of DWI convictions and drug abuse.

    III. Possible Prevention

    Possible prevention measures include these, among many others.

    DWI courts.
    License suspension or revocation.
    License plate confiscation.
    Vehicles impoundment or vehicle immobilization.
    Enforcement of open container bans.
    Increased penalties for drunk driving.
    Mandated alcohol education.
    Enforcement of seat belt laws.
    Expanded use of Designated Drivers.
    Solutions for Reducing Drinking and Driving.

    Alcohol-impaired drinking and driving resists simple solutions. However, there are a number of actions that could contribute to reducing the problem.

    DWI courts are effective in reducing drinking and driving while intoxicated. They work with hard-core repeat offenders. They do so by treating alcohol addiction. The recidivism or failure rate of DWI and DUI courts is very low.drinking and driving
    The single most effective measure to reduce drunk driving is automatic license revocation.(2)
    Automatic license revocation along with a mandatory jail appears to be even more effective.(3)
    Impounding or confiscating license plates.(4)
    Mandating ignition interlock devices. They prevent persons from starting a vehicle.(5)
    Vehicle impoundment or immobilization.(6)
    Expanding alcohol server training programs.(7)
    Implementing social norms programs. They correct the misperception that most people sometimes drive under the influence of alcohol.(8)
    Passing mandatory alcohol testing in fatal crashes. That would promote successful prosecution of drunk drivers.(9)
    Improved roads

    See Also

    How Long Does Alcohol Stay in Your Body?

    Avoid Unjust Conviction for DWI or DUI Charges.

    Technological improvements include raised lane markers, which are easier to see. They also make a startling sound when a tire wanders over them. Similarly, corrugations along the edges of roads emit a sound when driven over. This alerts inattentive drivers. Other cost-effective improvements can save lives. They include wider roads, improved street and highway lighting and break-away sign posts.

    Improved Vehicles

    Improvements in vehicles include brake lights at eye level, door crash bars, and many new computer-assisted features. The latter appear very promising.

    Promising but Inadequately Evaluated Measures.

    Distinctive license plate marking for an alcohol offense.(10)
    Passing and enforcing bans on open containers in vehicles.(11) Surprisingly, some states have no vehicular open container laws.(12)
    Imposing multi-tiered penalties based on BAC.(13) This is usual for speeding.
    Restricting nighttime driving by young people. This appears to be effective in those states with such restrictions.(14)
    Electronically monitoring repeat DWI offenders.(15)
    Involving drivers in identifying and reporting possibly drunken drivers. They can dialing 911 on their cell phones. See Help Police Stop Drunken Drivers.
    Provide information on alcohol and driving to prospective drivers. Then testing knowledge on it in their driver’s exams. Incredibly, some have provided factually incorrect information about drinking and driving.
    We need to evaluate scientifically all of these very promising measures. This would determine their effectiveness.

    Measures of Little or No Value.

    Jail or prison sentences for alcohol offenses. This is a popular policy. However, it’s of little value in deterring high BAC drivers.(16) In short, it appears that we can’t “jail our way out of the problem.”(17)
    The perception of swift and certain punishment is more important than severity.(18) Large fines appear have little deterrent effect.(19)
    Increasing the cost of alcohol would have virtually no impact on reducing drunk driving.(20) Both research and common sense suggest this. Cost doesn’t deter heavy drinkers. And most minors don’t buy their drinks.
    IV. Protect Yourself

    Society has done much to improve highway safety. However, you can do much to protect yourself.

    Don’t drive if alcohol-impaired. It’d dangerous and criminal. And don’t ride with anyone who has too much to drink. Remember, drunk drivers usually kill themselves and their passengers.
    Serve as a Designated Driver.
    Always use a safety seat belt.
    Use four-lane highways whenever possible.
    Avoid rural roads.
    Avoid travel after midnight. Especially on Fridays and Saturdays.
    Drive defensively.
    Buy safe vehicles. Refer to safety ratings before buying your next vehicle.
    Never use illegal drugs. They cause a large proportion of traffic fatalities.
    Never drive when fatigued. The dangers posed when fatigued are similar to those when intoxicated. A drunk or fatigued driver has slowed reactions and impaired judgment. And a driver who nods off at the wheel has no reactions and no judgment!
    Don’t use a cell phone, apply make-up, comb your hair, or eat while driving. Drivers using cell phones are four times more likely to have an accident than other drivers.
    Steer clear of aggressive drivers. Aggressive drivers may be responsible for more deaths than drunk drivers.
    If You Must Drive after Drinking, Stay Completely Sober.

    drinking and drivingThe typical can of beer, glass of dinner wine, or spirits drink each has virtually identical amounts of pure alcohol. A breathalyzer can’t tell the difference.
    Eat while drinking. This helps keep your BAC down.
    Sip your drinks slowly.
    Don’t play drinking games.
    Have a non-alcoholic drink between alcoholic ones.
    Pace your drinks. A general rule of thumb is no more than one alcoholic drink per hour.
    Accept an alcoholic drink only when it fits your consumption schedule.
    Stick with standard drink sizes. That makes it easier to keep track of your intake of pure alcohol.
    Follow medical advice about drinking with any medications you’e taking.
    IV. Protect Others.

    drinking and drivingServe as a Designated Driver.

    Never condone excessive alcohol consumption. It’s dangerous and never amusing.

    Don’t ever let your friends drive drunk. Do whatever is necessary. Just don’t let them drive!

    Be a responsible host.

    Create a setting conducive to easy, comfortable socializing. One that discourages heavy drinking.

    Serve food before beginning to serve alcoholic drinks. This de-emphasizes the importance of alcohol and also sends the message that intoxication is not desirable.

    Have a responsible bartender or server who doesn’t push alcoholic drinks

    Don’t have an “open bar.” A responsible person needs to supervise consumption to ensure that no one drinks too much. You have both a moral and a legal responsibility to make sure that none of your guests drink too much.

    Pace alcoholic drinks. Serve them at regular intervals. Once an hour is a good guideline.

    Push snacks. Make sure that people are eating.

    Offer a diversity of attractive non-alcohol drinks.

    Respect anyone’s choice not to drink. Their reason is their business.

    Decide when you want the gathering to end. Stop serving alcohol well before that time. Then begin serving coffee along with substantial snacks. This provides non-drinking time before your guests leave.

    Don’t let anyone drive after the gathering if you think they seem impaired. Think ahead. Have another guest take them home. Call a taxi. Ask them to stay the night. But don’t let them drive if they seem impaired. That’s your legal and moral obligation.

    Solutions for Reducing Drinking and Driving.

    Alcohol-impaired drinking and driving resists simple solutions. However, there are a number of actions that could contribute to reducing the problem.

    DWI courts are effective in reducing drinking and driving while intoxicated. They work with hard-core repeat offenders. They do so by treating alcohol addiction. The recidivism or failure rate of DWI and DUI courts is very low.drinking and driving
    The single most effective measure to reduce drunk driving is automatic license revocation.(2)
    Automatic license revocation along with a mandatory jail appears to be even more effective.(3)
    Impounding or confiscating license plates.(4)
    Mandating ignition interlock devices. They prevent persons from starting a vehicle.(5)
    Vehicle impoundment or immobilization.(6)
    Expanding alcohol server training programs.(7)
    Implementing social norms programs. They correct the misperception that most people sometimes drive under the influence of alcohol.(8)
    Passing mandatory alcohol testing in fatal crashes. That would promote successful prosecution of drunk drivers.(9)
    Improved roads

    Technological improvements include raised lane markers, which are easier to see. They also make a startling sound when a tire wanders over them. Similarly, corrugations along the edges of roads emit a sound when driven over. This alerts inattentive drivers. Other cost-effective improvements can save lives. They include wider roads, improved street and highway lighting and break-away sign posts.

    Improved Vehicles

    Improvements in vehicles include brake lights at eye level, door crash bars, and many new computer-assisted features. The latter appear very promising.

    Promising but Inadequately Evaluated Measures.

    Distinctive license plate marking for an alcohol offense.(10)
    Passing and enforcing bans on open containers in vehicles.(11) Surprisingly, some states have no vehicular open container laws.(12)
    Imposing multi-tiered penalties based on BAC.(13) This is usual for speeding.
    Restricting nighttime driving by young people. This appears to be effective in those states with such restrictions.(14)
    Electronically monitoring repeat DWI offenders.(15)
    Involving drivers in identifying and reporting possibly drunken drivers. They can dialing 911 on their cell phones. See Help Police Stop Drunken Drivers.
    Provide information on alcohol and driving to prospective drivers. Then testing knowledge on it in their driver’s exams. Incredibly, some have provided factually incorrect information about drinking and driving.
    We need to evaluate scientifically all of these very promising measures. This would determine their effectiveness.

    Measures of Little or No Value.

    Jail or prison sentences for alcohol offenses. This is a popular policy. However, it’s of little value in deterring high BAC drivers.(16) In short, it appears that we can’t “jail our way out of the problem.”(17)
    The perception of swift and certain punishment is more important than severity.(18) Large fines appear have little deterrent effect.(19)
    Increasing the cost of alcohol would have virtually no impact on reducing drunk driving.(20) Both research and common sense suggest this. Cost doesn’t deter heavy drinkers. And most minors don’t buy their drinks.
    IV. Protect Yourself

    Society has done much to improve highway safety. However, you can do much to protect yourself.

    Don’t drive if alcohol-impaired. It’d dangerous and criminal. And don’t ride with anyone who has too much to drink. Remember, drunk drivers usually kill themselves and their passengers.
    Serve as a Designated Driver.
    Always use a safety seat belt.
    Use four-lane highways whenever possible.
    Avoid rural roads.
    Avoid travel after midnight. Especially on Fridays and Saturdays.
    Drive defensively.
    Buy safe vehicles. Refer to safety ratings before buying your next vehicle.
    Never use illegal drugs. They cause a large proportion of traffic fatalities.
    Never drive when fatigued. The dangers posed when fatigued are similar to those when intoxicated. A drunk or fatigued driver has slowed reactions and impaired judgment. And a driver who nods off at the wheel has no reactions and no judgment!
    Don’t use a cell phone, apply make-up, comb your hair, or eat while driving. Drivers using cell phones are four times more likely to have an accident than other drivers.
    Steer clear of aggressive drivers. Aggressive drivers may be responsible for more deaths than drunk drivers.
    If You Must Drive after Drinking, Stay Completely Sober.

    drinking and drivingThe typical can of beer, glass of dinner wine, or spirits drink each has virtually identical amounts of pure alcohol. A breathalyzer can’t tell the difference.
    Eat while drinking. This helps keep your BAC down.
    Sip your drinks slowly.
    Don’t play drinking games.
    Have a non-alcoholic drink between alcoholic ones.
    Pace your drinks. A general rule of thumb is no more than one alcoholic drink per hour.
    Accept an alcoholic drink only when it fits your consumption schedule.
    Stick with standard drink sizes. That makes it easier to keep track of your intake of pure alcohol.
    Follow medical advice about drinking with any medications you’e taking.
    IV. Protect Others.

    drinking and drivingServe as a Designated Driver.

    Never condone excessive alcohol consumption. It’s dangerous and never amusing.

    Don’t ever let your friends drive drunk. Do whatever is necessary. Just don’t let them drive!

    Be a responsible host.

    Create a setting conducive to easy, comfortable socializing. One that discourages heavy drinking.

    Serve food before beginning to serve alcoholic drinks. This de-emphasizes the importance of alcohol and also sends the message that intoxication is not desirable.

    Have a responsible bartender or server who doesn’t push alcoholic drinks

    Don’t have an “open bar.” A responsible person needs to supervise consumption to ensure that no one drinks too much. You have both a moral and a legal responsibility to make sure that none of your guests drink too much.

    Pace alcoholic drinks. Serve them at regular intervals. Once an hour is a good guideline.

    Push snacks. Make sure that people are eating.

    Offer a diversity of attractive non-alcohol drinks.

    Respect anyone’s choice not to drink. Their reason is their business.

    Decide when you want the gathering to end. Stop serving alcohol well before that time. Then begin serving coffee along with substantial snacks. This provides non-drinking time before your guests leave.

    Don’t let anyone drive after the gathering if you think they seem impaired. Think ahead. Have another guest take them home. Call a taxi. Ask them to stay the night. But don’t let them drive if they seem impaired. That’s your legal and moral obligation.

    You are an amazing person :D

    He is amazing in bed too :wink:

    Drinking and Driving Facts and Solutions

    Drinking and driving while either impaired or drunk is dangerous. Drivers with high blood alcohol concentration (BAC) are at much greater risk of traffic crashes. This means more injuries and deaths.

    Overview
    I. The Problem
    II. Facts
    III.Possible Preventions
    IV. Protect Yourself
    V. Protect Others
    VI. Often Overlooked
    I. The Drinking and Driving Problem

    Every single injury and death caused by drunk driving is totally preventable. The proportion of alcohol-impaired drinking and driving crashes has dropped greatly over time. But there are still far too many such crashes. So in spite of great progress, alcohol-impaired drinking and driving remains a serious problem. It tragically effects many victims and their families annually.

    It’s easy to forget that dry statistics represent real people. Therefore, this page is dedicated to the memory of one randomly-selected victim of a drunk driver. She is young Holli Crockett.

    II. Facts about Drinking and Driving.

    drinking and drivingMost drivers who have had something to drink have a low BAC. Few have fatal crashes. Only a few drivers have BACs higher than 0.15. Yet a much, much higher proportion have fatal crashes. The average BAC among fatally injured drinking drivers is about twice the legal limit.(1)

    The risk of death from drinking and driving escalates with BAC. And it does so dramatically

    High BAC drivers tend to be male and aged 25-35. Also, they often have a history of DWI convictions and drug abuse.

    III. Possible Prevention

    Possible prevention measures include these, among many others.

    DWI courts.
    License suspension or revocation.
    License plate confiscation.
    Vehicles impoundment or vehicle immobilization.
    Enforcement of open container bans.
    Increased penalties for drunk driving.
    Mandated alcohol education.
    Enforcement of seat belt laws.
    Expanded use of Designated Drivers.
