Purim Pledge

A friend has created a Facebook group asking that people commit to the following Purim Pledge:
In order to help ensure a safer Purim, I pledge that
1) I will not operate or attempt to operate a vehicle if I have consumed any alcoholic beverages whatsoever.
2) I will not get into a vehicle driven by anyone who has consumed any alcoholic beverages whatsoever.
3) If, in consultation with my parents and Rebbeim and while obeying all applicable laws, I choose to drink on Purim, I will make safe transportation arrangements before Purim.

For an additional raffle entry: I will encourage my friends to sign the Purim Pledge.

Teenagers and young adults between 15-24.
National advertisement publishing the names of participants and winners. (include a disclaimer in Purim Pledge that notes that their names may be published), No Smoking Pledge.
For more information or questions, please contact Chaim Shapiro at chaimshapiro@aol.com or chaimshapiro.com
Sounds like a great pledge to stay safe on Purim. Head on over to the Facebook Group to join the pledge..

  1. The pledge seems to imply that the only dangerous thing about getting drunk is driving.

    Purim drinkers also need to be aware that drinking too much can cause fatal alcohol poisoning or one can choke to death on his own vomit. Permanent brain damage can also be caused.

    If someone is unconscious from drinking they are in danger of dying.

    If someone doesn't know the difference between arur haman and baruch mordechai, call paramedics.

    Blood alcohol levels above .25% and especially over .35% are potentially life threatening.

    Having 5 or more drinks in a row for an adult, can cause dangerous blood alcohol levels.
