    Booze It and Lose It ran through Oct. 31
    The scariest part of Halloween is not in a haunted house or in a graveyard; it is behind the wheel of a car. Impaired drivers, who choose to get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol, end up making the roads scarier than a horror movie.
    “It is important for those who plan to drink to find a designated driver,” said GHSP Director Becky Wallace. “The consequences of drinking and driving can be deadly.”
