Driving While Intoxicated Accidents and the Holidays

One of the most important parts of the holiday season is celebrating with friends and family. Unfortunately, there is one holiday tradition that can actually put innocent lives at risk of an accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the number of drunken driving accidents and fatalities increases significantly between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated is a reckless and irresponsible activity that compromises an individual’s ability to make decisions and drive safely.

Alcohol and the Holidays

There are many factors that play a role in the increase in drunken driving accidents during the holiday season. During this time, there are typically many parties or get-togethers with friends and family where drinking alcohol is not only acceptable, but in many cases a major part of the event.

Throughout the holiday season, it is important to be extremely vigilant while driving, as increased numbers of drunk drivers on the road pose a risk to your health and safety. Unfortunately, even the most careful drivers cannot prevent all accidents.
