• 22% binge drank and some point
• 8% drove their car after drinking
• 24% rode with in a car with someone who had been drinking

The project which included a tour of the brewing process at the Coors Brewery was not to promote drinking; however, was made to have a deeper understanding of anaerobic respiration.
