Evidently, the multi million dollar DUI tv and radio campaign have been a huge success. Wonderful. We are now all much much much safer. Congrats to all. Let's have a beer. Oh wait.....maybe the decline in alcohol related deaths is attributable to something else?
So what is it? Do we throw more money at more advertising campaigns for other societal behavior issues? Or do we scrap the idea of big dollars and a massive media campaign because it really doesn't work?
When can we expect to see the same browbeating messages directed issues such as pedophilia, child abuse, and domestic violence? OR are these behaviors not as threatening to our well being?
No I don't think drinking and driving is ok. No I don't agree with .08 BAC defining being being impaired. Yes, I think DUI enforcement is a just a big money maker and is driving enforcement priorities and how money gets spent.
I guess I hate the indirect message I get from these adds that DUIs are the single worse behavior issue we have as a society.
