• I promise not to drink and drive during Spring Break, or let any of my friends get behind the wheel impaired.
• I will not ride in a car when the driver has been drinking.
• I will wear my seatbelt, whether I’m the driver or passenger.
• I will focus on my driving when behind the wheel and not be distracted by mobile devices, music or passengers.
• I will watch out for my friends, take care of myself, and do what I can to plan for a Safe Spring Break!

The BACCHUS Network encourages you to have a Safe Spring Break this year. Whatever your plans are, make sure they include these tips:
• Remember, impairment begins with the first drink. Choose not to drink if you are driving, or be safe with a designated driver.
• Wear your seatbelt. Always. It’s your best protection in a crash.
• Distracted driving is dangerous. Park the car to check mobile devices.
• Respect other peoples’ right, and your own, to choose not to drink. 
• Respect state laws and campus policies.
• Stay out of dangerous situations involving alcohol, whether in a car, bar or bedroom.
• If a friend drinks to the point of passing out, alcohol poisoning is a real danger. If you’re concerned, seek medical attention. Better safe than sorry!


Dear BACCHUS Peer Educators and Advisors:

Welcome to the 2014 Safe Spring Break Campaign. Since Spring Break often coincides with opportunities for increased travel home, to service trips, or to vacation destinations and time to relax with friends, this year’s campaign reminds everyone to #LeadtheBreak and be safe!

Your BACCHUS Safe Spring Break toolkit is full of everything you need year-round prevention efforts. You can order promotional items to support your campaign efforts on campus. This campaign is an opportunity to get important information out to students during the week or two prior to Spring Break on topics such as personal safety, highway safety, alcohol, impaired driving, sleep and sun safety.

We are busy updating this toolkit to include up-to-date information for your peer education groups. In the meanwhile, you can access last year's campaign at the link below.
