P.A.S.S. Holiday Campaign
Plan ahead – give the gift of a sober ride home or add a sober driver to your holiday wish list if you will be drinking. It is important to plan ahead because once you start drinking your judgment becomes impaired. If you know you will be drinking alcohol with family and friends, designate a sober driver before you start drinking. A sober driver is one who has had nothing to drink – not just the least amount to drink.
The hospitality industry in Texas annually generates billions of dollars of economic activity and tax revenue and is responsible for hundreds of thousands of jobs.
In July 2008, for example, the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) collected $17.85 million in beverage alcohol taxes in the following categories: distilled spirits, $6.5 million; wine $828,000; and beer and ale, $10.5 million.
