Don't Wreck the Holidays - Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving

During the holiday season, which runs between the end of November until the New Year, car accidents increase significantly. Between November 28th and December 15th, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) promotes their “Don’t Wreck the Holidays” campaign. They wish to stress the importance of avoiding driving after drinking and that buzzed driving is drunk driving.

During this time, you must know your role while celebrating with your family and friends and, if your role is to be the designated driver, even one drink is not acceptable. The best way to avoid a fatal accident or a DUI is to remain completely sober. Here are statistics involving drunk driving and accidents during the holiday season:

  • Between December 18-31, 2013, 30% of the 1,180 car accident fatalities in the US were because of drunk drivers
  • Between 2009-2013, there were nearly 4,000 fatalities due to drunk driving

Our Attorneys Wish You a Safe Holiday Season

While you’re enjoying your roasted turkey, opening presents with your family and friends, and counting down till 2016, we truly hope you and your family remember to be safe. Always plan on driving sober or taking a taxi and don’t believe that you can calculate your own blood alcohol level based upon how many drinks you’ve had. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
