WUVT would like to remind you not to drink and drive. It doesn't matter if you've had one drink or ten, if you are driving a hundred miles or just one. Alcohol impairs your motor coordination, and if you get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol, you could kill yourself or someone else. So do everyone a favor and make sure you do not drive while under the influence of alcohol.
Every 10 seconds, a person in the United States needs blood. Do your part by giving blood at your local Red Cross Blood Drive. One donation can help save the lives of three human beings in need. You can visit http://www.redcrossblood.org for more information and to find a blood drive near you.
