Every 22 minutes someone dies in an alcohol-related motor vehicle accident.In a family of five, the chance that someone in the family will find themselves in an alcohol-related motor vehicle crash in their lifetime, is 200%. During the past month (30 days), 26.4% of underage persons (ages 12-20) used alcohol, and binge drinking among the same age group was 17.4%.
Let’s see what you have at stake here

Know the Law(may vary state to state)
A Minor in Possession (MIP) is the most common charge in the state when it comes to underage drinking. Any teen found with alcohol, or suspected of consuming it will be charged with MIP. Possession or consumption of alcohol by a minor is only allowed
happens on private property, with the property owner’s consent, and under direct supervision of that minor’s parent or guardian. There are strict punishments for this charge.
Fine up to $250, up to 24 hours community service, and a license revocation for 3 months if the minor fails to follow court ordered instructions
Fine up to $500, up to 24 hours community service, mandatory alcohol class, and a license revocation for 6 months
Third Offense or More:
3-12 months imprisonment and/or $250-$1000 fine (both determined by court), mandatory alcohol class, and a license revocation for one (1) yearSlide7
Know the Law(may vary state to state)
Drinking and Driving (UDD) is the charge given to any driver younger than 21-years-old with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) between .02 and .05 percent. Teen drivers with a BAC greater than .05 percent can face DUI/DWAI charges just like an adult. A first time UDD conviction is a Class A driving infraction which generally results in a fine up to $100 and community service. A second UDD becomes a criminal charge
Drivers will also be subject to the following administrative penalties:
Results in automatic revocation of license for 3 months
Results in automatic revocation of license for 6 months
Results in automatic revocation of license for one (1) yearSlide8

Do you think this is okay for the safety of your friends?Slide9
Tricky Scenario #1 Answer
Your friends could all be cited for a Minor in Possession (MIP) infraction. Which could lead to your dad being charged with Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor, a felony. Also, if any of your friends were to be caught on the way home,
be faced with legal charges. Your dad will be charged with aiding and abetting and
the driver will
be charged for underage drinking
driving (UDD). There is a 0 tolerance for anyone under 21.
There is a potential risk of a collision or death.
As a young adult you
should realize the potential
a moral obligation to keep your friends safe.Slide10
Tricky Scenario #2
Position yourself in a situation where you are surrounded by 6 friends all older than yourself by a year or two. You all decide to hang out at your house because your parents are away for the night. You sneak into their alcohol stash and take unnoticeable amounts. Eventually you are all intoxicated, some more than others. Everyone is famished and decided to designate a driver to drive to McDonalds. You feel as if you are the most capable, but run into the problem of whether or not to volunteer. Either you can risk getting caught and go get the food because you are the least intoxicated OR you can sit quiet and let your friend who is more intoxicated than you go and risk potentially getting caught or causing a wreck. What do you do?
Note: you will be made fun of if you try to stop anyone from going.Slide11
Tricky Scenario #2 Answer
Neither there is always a safer option in these cases.
You restrain anyone from going even if it renders you uncool. Would you rather be safe or risk more than you already have by drinking and driving.
If you were in the position where you got caught for drinking at home you would be in less of a mess than if you got caught drunk and driving.
If you or another friend leave to get food you run the risk of getting caught for UDD, a police record, your parents alerted, and/or possibly a wreck. Also, the members of th
feel unsafe in the presence of such activities.Slide12
Benefits of Drinking and Driving!
How to Curb Underage Drinking and Driving
The first step in curbing underage drinking
realizing what you’re about to do.
Ask yourself should I really risk the lives of myself and others?
Think of the consequences and benefits
If you don
t drive while under the influence of alcohol yet still
have a drinking problem,
talk to a counselor or your parents. Let’s be real here would your parents be more mad if you were caught drinking than if you told them you have a problem in the first place. Think it through.
Note: It doesn’t make you cool to drink and drive.Slide14
, alcohol is widely available and aggressively promoted throughout society.
Alcohol has been seen as
a normal part of growing
up in the eyes of some. Yet, underage
drinking is dangerous, not only for the drinker but also for
the community as a whole. We can see the proof in the
number of alcohol-involved motor vehicle crashes, homicides, suicides, and other injuries.
People who begin
drinking and driving run
the risk of developing serious alcohol problems,
such as alcoholism and also other greater risks mentioned in this presentation.Slide15
