“All It Takes Is 1” - 1 person, 1 drink, 1 choice, 1 second

Presented by Partners for Prevention of Erie County (PPEC) & Students Preventing Abuse and Raising Knowledge (SPARK).Pledge

“I pledge to always drive sober. I understand that it only takes one person, one drink, one choice, and one second for my life or the life of another to be over. By taking this pledge, I will never willingly allow my friends, family, or co-workers to drink and drive. If I drink, I will know the alternatives for getting home safely and in turn will utilize a safe alternative every time. I will insure that those around me know the safe alternatives as well. If I drink, I will make a plan and stick to the plan, so I will get home safely.”
