Resolve to Never Drink and Drive

The statistics say about 40-45% of Americans set New Year’s Resolutions, but according to Stephen Shapiro, author of Goal-Free Living, “24% (one in four people) never succeed and have failed on every resolution ever year.” However, for those that make resolutions there is a higher rate of success in changing habits than nonresolvers; at six months, 46% of the resolvers were continuously successful compared to 4% of the nonresolvers

So what are people resolving to change? Tammy Beckman reports that the top resolutions for 2012 included losing weight and getting fit or healthy, saving money, quitting smoking, starting or enjoying relationships. None of these facts are a surprise. Making life style changes is what the resolution is all about. But what about The ONE that is easy to achieve that saves you money?

Resolve to Never Drink and Drive. This simple idea did not make the top ten resolutions. Yet, in Texas, according to the Texas Department of Transportation study, a first time offender could expect to pay between $9000 and $24,000 for DWI arrest and conviction. What about the large price should a DWI be responsible for a death such as a recent alleged incident involving a Dallas Cowboy football player? Designated Drivers are an essential key to setting and keeping this resolution.
