DWI - What You Need to Know with UPD (Fall 2022 TBA)

Friday 3/16/22 at 2:30pm in Weigel 203

In the United States, roughly 28 people die every day in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. In 2014, nearly 10,000 Americans were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes. Alcohol-related accidents accounted for nearly one-third of all traffic-related deaths.

A blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.08% is considered legally impaired. However, alcohol can start to affect many of your senses after only one drink.  Drivers who are between the ages of 16 and 20 years old are 10 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash, than drivers over the age of 21. 

Learn about the physiological effects of alcohol on the body at increasing BAC levels, consequences for driving while intoxicated, implied consent, zero-tolerance, NYS DWI Statures, aggravated DWI laws and Leandra’s law.


Vaping, Marijuana & Tobacco Free Workshops


LGBTQ Targeting by the Tobacco Industry: Presented by Roswell



It’s common for LGBTQ individuals to experience disparities that stem from social stigma and

discriminatory treatment. On top of that there is a different kind of disparity in the LGBTQ
