Arrive Alive! Travel Safely
Motor vehicle crashes pose the greatest risk to the safety of college-aged men and women. Winter road conditions, fatigue (remember those late nights studying for exams) and the rush to get home for the holidays can be a dangerous mix. Take your time, have all the occupants wear safety belts, and make sure the driver is well rested. And of course, don’t drink and drive. Click here for more information.
