Beer and Wine Distributors Ask Michiganders to Drink Responsibly this Holiday Season

Michigan’s beer and wine distributors have joined the governor in asking Michiganders to do the right thing.

The Michigan Beer and Wine Wholesalers Association and its nearly 50 member distributors across the state are urging Michiganders to drink responsibly this holiday season and to not get behind the wheel if they have been drinking.

“Michigan’s beer and wine distributors actively partner with law enforcement and health professionals to promote responsible consumption of alcohol and reduce drunken driving and binge and underage drinking,” said association President Spencer Nevins. “We urge Michiganders to avoid driving while impaired; and if you have had too much to drink or are in doubt, call a friend, a cab or order a rideshare.”

An annual audit by the Michigan State Police found more than 40% of all fatal crashes in 2019 involved alcohol, drugs or both. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer proclaimed December as Impaired Driver Month to remember those who lost their lives due to impaired driving and to remind Michiganders that preventing impaired driving deaths and injuries is every driver’s responsibility.

“Every Michigander deserves to drive on our roads safely,” said Whitmer. “We all have a personal responsibility to keep one another safe. During this month and beyond, I encourage everyone to protect our families, friends and neighbors by driving responsibly; and as we continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, I urge you to wear a mask, practice social distancing and wash hands frequently.”
