Drive Safely On Holiday

To The Editor:

This Memorial Day, whether you're kicking off the start of summer in the backyard with barbecues or out on the waterways, stay safe by drinking responsibly and choosing a designated driver or designated "skipper" before the festivities begin.

Keep these tips in mind to help you enjoy safe Memorial Day celebrations:

1. Buckle up. Ask everyone to wear a seat belt.

2. Be an Attentive Driver. Always be in control and aware of the drivers around you.

3. Don't Speed. Resist the urge to speed by making sure there's plenty of time to reach your destination.

4. Drink Responsibly. Adults who choose to drink should make responsible choices about when, where and how much they decide to drink.

Anheuser-Busch is committed to keeping our roadways and waterways safe Memorial Day weekend and every day and offers programs to help prevent drunk driving and boating. Drunk-driving fatalities during the Memorial Day period are down 26 percent since 1982, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.

We encourage everyone to do their part by continuing to make responsible choices this Memorial Day weekend. Remember, Responsibility Matters!
