Young drivers continue to be at a higher risk of crashing after consuming even small amounts of alcohol or drugs or a combination of both. In addition, young people often tend to ride together in groups, which compound the effects of a drinking and driving tragedy.
Despite this risk, young drivers have responded particularly well to the problem of drinking, drugs and driving. They have embraced the designated driver concept, and it has become socially acceptable to abstain from drinking or doing drugs if you are driving. The decrease in their rate of involvement in alcohol-related crashes has lead all other age groups in the past decade.
Whether you're the designated driver or the passenger, consider signing a Contract for Life (pdf, 27 kb).
