During the holiday season, it can be difficult to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. However, there is one gift that any adult would love to receive this year: a designated driver. Help your friends and family members enjoy the great times this holiday season by getting them home safe and sound. You also can encourage them to join you -- and the Nation of Responsible Drinkers -- in pledging to drink responsibly and use a designated driver at NationOfResponsibleDrinkers.com.

Fortunately, thanks to the help of designated drivers and increased law enforcement, the nation has made significant progress in preventing drunk driving. According to the latest government data, drunk-driving fatalities fell to their lowest level since alcohol record-keeping began in 1982, a 52 percent decline from 1982 to 2010, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

While that's great news, there's always more work to be done. That's why Dichello Distributors and Budweiser have partnered to promote "designated drivers."

All of us at Dichello Distributors wish our friends and neighbors a safe and happy holiday. Together, we can help keep our roads safe.
