Oregon is ranked among the top 10 worst states when it comes to the number of DUII arrests; and the stats show that the rate is even higher in Central Oregon. Add holiday parties to the mix and it can be pretty dangerous out there.  A longtime drug and alcohol counselor says he's seen too much death in his line of work. And one thing about drinking and driving, it's 100 percent preventable. It's especially bad this time of year with holiday parties. Jerry Gjeswold says you just need to have the courage to speak up. He offers this script: “You know we recognize tonight that you’ve had a little bit too much to drink and we think its in your best interest not  to get behind the wheel of a car and drive. And of course people typically respond with “Oh I’m fine, I’ll be okay, well, you know, if you go out and something were to happen to you, I would just be devastated, because I care too much.” Gjesvold says drinking and driving has much more serious consequences in other counties- in one you lose your license for life and in Malaysia,  your spouse has to go to jail with you for six months
