November through January is one of the deadliest times to drive a vehicle due to the increase of cars on the road.

Car accidents due to alcohol consumption skyrocket during the holiday season. In fact, an average of 300 people died in drunk driving crashes the week between Christmas and New Year over the past 5 years. In addition, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 781 people lost their lives due to drunk driving crashes in 2016 between Christmas and New Year.

By Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie on December 22, 2016

Drinking and driving is at an all time high during the holiday season. Obviously if you are drinking you should not drive at all, but many people make the mistake of having a drink or two and think they’re fine to drive since they are not “legally” drunk.
