Tioga ASAP Joins WEBO Morning Show to discuss Impaired Driving

Jenna Layton, Coalition Coordinator of Tioga ASAP(Allies Substance Abuse Prevention) and Kylie Holochak, 2020 Coalition Chair joined the WEBO morning show to discuss the dangers of impaired driving. Taking a controlled substance, even if it has been prescribed to you, and then getting behind the wheel will be considered driving under the influence.  With the holidays approaching, it is important to make a plan if you know you are going to a party that will have alcohol.  If you aren’t the person that has been drinking, and you are out with your family, as an individual that is traveling, it is important to drive defensively and to take extra precaution. Jenna stated “it is very important that everyone is wearing their seat-belt.”  Impaired driving does not just mean alcohol it can include using any substance. Holochak stated “the current statistics from the CDC 29 people die every day in motor vehicle crash that could be preventable which breaks down to 1 in 3 car crashes are 100% preventable.”  Holochak states “put down your phone when you are driving and pay attention.” Layton stated “Lock up alcohol if there will be youth in your home.”  For more information, Tioga ASAP Coalition can be found on Facebook.
