The editorial staff of the student newspaper of Armstrong Atlantic State University, The Inkwell, penned an editorial recently to remind students not to drive while under the influence during the upcoming St. Patrick's Day and spring break festivities. According to The Inkwell, 31 percent of traffic fatalities in Georgia over the last two years involved an alcohol-impaired driver.
March is the month when many college students, high school students or families take spring break. This much-needed break from school or work can involve a relaxing "stay-cation" spent at home or a trip elsewhere in the U.S. or abroad. Either way, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers health and safety tips on its website for individuals and families to stay safe while still having a good time on spring break.
