Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

While Halloween can be a little scary with ghosts, witches and zombies running around your neighborhood, there is nothing scarier than the danger posed to your community when people get behind the wheel drunk.

Drunk driving crashes increase during holidays like Halloween, but you can do your part to keep our roads safe. Whether your plans involve a monster mash or a murder mystery, plan ahead to use a rideshare service, designated driver, or public transportation to help get to and from your destination safely whenever alcohol is involved.

Together with Anheuser-Busch, Silver Eagle Distributors is reminding everyone that there is no excuse to drive drunk and it’s up to you to Make a Plan to Make it Home and keep our roads safe for everyone this Halloween. Over the past 30 years, Anheuser-Busch and its wholesaler partners have invested more than $1 billion in the United States to promote alcohol responsibility and prevent drunk driving.

This Halloween we’ll be working with area bars and restaurants to remind adults to plan ahead for a safe ride home before they head out to celebrate. And in conjunction with the Houston Restaurant Association, we will also be implementing programs such as Alert Cab, which helps provide free and discounted rides home for bar and restaurant patrons who may have had too much to drink. Driver’s License guides and We I.D. age calendars will also be used to assist in identifying and preventing those who are underage from purchasing and consuming alcohol.

From everyone at Silver Eagle Distributors, we wish you a hair-raising, spell-binding, and safe Halloween!
