  • Also, statistics show that more teens are killed by alcohol than by all illegal drugs combined.
  • Approximately 5,000 people die in this sort of matter as a result of drinking. This includes about 1,900 deaths from car accidents, 1,600 homicides, 300 suicides, and hundreds of other deaths due to accidents like falls, burns and drowning.

Trimet

I have purposed a solution to Trimet, in which they will help out people who are under the influence and that don't want to drive home. We agreed upon giving out a free fare to anyone who is under the influence. You can only recieve this free fare after Midnight on fridays, saturdays and on special holidays. Buses will be running on 5th and 6th Ave until 3 a.m.
