  It is a choice. Either you decide to be safe, or you dare to be stupid. Most people have had an alcoholic drink in their lives. Some enjoy drinking a little, while others don't know when to stop. No matter what, there is one golden rule we must all obeynever drink and drive. Every day, people around the world are killed because of drunk driving. Those losses are avoidable because drinking and driving is a choice.

  這是一項選擇。你要不是決定保持安全,就是膽敢當個笨蛋。多數人的一生中都喝過酒精飲料。有些人喜歡淺酌一杯,而有些人則是不知何時該停下來。無論如何,有一條黃金守則我們都必須遵守──永遠都不要酒後開車。因為酒後駕車之故,全世界每天都會有人因此失去性命。這些損失是可以避免的,因為酒後駕車是一項選擇。

  To take action against drunk driving, parents, students, and others have joined together. SADD, Students Against Destructive Decisions, is an organization that was founded in the US in 1981. A high school student started it to encourage his classmates to make better decisions. Today, the group uses education to discuss the dangers of alcohol, drugs, and bad choices. Similarly, MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, was formed by a mother whose 13-year-old daughter was killed by a drunk driver. Their mission is to prevent drunk driving and help people who suffer from it. They also educate people on making better choices and push for stricter laws. These and other groups all agree that there is no choice when it comes to drunk driving. The answer is always no.

  為了採取行動來對抗酒後駕車,父母、學生和其他人都因此團結在一起。簡稱為SADD的反毀滅性決定學生聯盟,是一個在1981年成立於美國的組織。一名高中生為了鼓勵同學做出更好的決定,因而創辦了這個組織。如今,這個團體透過教育來探討酒類、藥物和糟糕選擇會造成的危險。相似地,簡稱為MADD的反酒駕母親聯盟,是一位其十三歲女兒被酒醉駕駛奪走性命的母親所成立的。他們的使命是預防酒後駕車,並且幫助那些因酒後駕車而遭到不幸的人們。他們同時還教育人們做出更好的選擇,並努力推動更為嚴格的法律。上述組織和其他團體都同意,當提到酒後駕車時,我們沒有別的選擇。答案永遠都是不。
