The Greatest Danger
What is the greatest threat to the
survival of young Americans? The war
in Viet Nam? Drugs? VD? .Malnutrition?
The correct an.swer, says Psycholo
gist Leon Goldstein ol the National
Safety Transportation Board, is riding
in an automobile.
A Safety Board study reveals that
youths are especially likely to have fala!
car accidents between the ages of 16
and 19 and while driving at night, when
driving conditions arc most hazardous.
Goldstein said he was also amazed to
discover that "measurable alcohol" had
been a contributing factor in up to 60
percent of auto deaths involving youth
between 16 and 24. That means, he says,
that at least one-tenth of one percent
alcoholic content in the driver’s blood—
the equivalent for a. 160-pound male of
five shots of 100 proof v\niskey guzzled
on an empty .stomach within a hour.
Some other interesting facts from
“Death By Ounces,” 1972 book of high
way accident statistics by the Travelers
Those of us who drive today are
survivors. Every day, thousands of oth
er drivers who take to the highways
aren’t so lucky. They wind up victims
of the motor car which, in its brief life,
has already claimed more lives than all
the wars in our history.
Half the deaths, injuries and prop
erty damage occurring on our higl.i ays
every year stem from accidents in which
alcohol is involved. For a long while,
the effects of alcohol on accident rates
lay buried in the very statistics of acci
dents. Alcohol was rarely listed as the
“cause" of an accident. When, for in
stance, a drunk diiver smashed into a
tree at 80 m.p.h., only “excessive speed ’
was likely to be entered as the cause
on the official accident report.
The book points out that new re
search techniques and investigation pro-
cedui’es have exposed tne qi^uk u,-ver
as the greatest menace on the high
“Death by Ounces’’ notes that the
drunk driver killed 27,000 men, women
and children — almost double the num
ber killed as the result of violent crimi
nal acts during 1971. He injured
2,350,000 others, many permanently.
This represents an average of more in
juries in one ..nonth than were sustain
ed through crimes of violence for the
entire year. He w’as responsible for a
daily economic loss amounting to nearly
820 million. He caused suffering and
grief that no one can begin to measure.
Research, surveys, new' legislation,
and action programs are all signs that
we are at last moving to meet the prob
lem of the drinking driver head on —
before it meets us on the road.

O'Brien describes the master plan
for the Bicentennial observance. It con
sists of three interrelated programs in
which all states and communities are
c ailed upon to participate. He continues,
“The first—Heritage 76—is aji on-going
commemoration of great momerds of
lasting L'gacies IToid the nation’s past.
.'V second program—Festival USA—en-
c-ourages us to travel, to discover Ameri
ca tor oui-sclves, and to open our hearts
and homes to people of other lands. The
thii’d, Horizons 76—challenges us, in the
President's words, “to dedicate effort for
the lulfillmont to improve the quality
oi Ar/.'ican life. . .’’
The Bicentennial Era provides an
unparalleled opportunity to affirm our
laith in the United States.
