The Dangers of Drunk Driving During the Holiday Season

November through January is one of the deadliest times to drive a vehicle due to the increase of cars on the road. Not surprisingly, additional cars on the road lead to the increased chance of getting into an accident, especially during the peak travel days. The holiday season has been proven to be the riskiest time of year for drivers due to weather conditions and drunk driving accidents. 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.

What You Can Do

In all 50 states, drunk driving is strictly against the law. During the Holidays, it is so important to drink responsibly and never drink and drive. Drunk driving accidents are 100% preventable, and there are many easy and safe options to prevent fatal accidents this holiday season.

  • Plan a safe ride with a designated sober driver
  • Call a Taxi, Lyft, or Uber
  • Do not let your family, friends, or colleagues get behind the wheel if they are intoxicated
  • If you suspect a drunk driver, call the police. You could save a life.
  • Ride public transportation
  • Plan ahead before festive gatherings
