December is a time when many engage in drinking alcohol during the holidays. It also makes it a good time for alcohol awareness campaigns such as Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over to remind people that drinking and driving do not mix. Alcohol use impairs judgment, delays reaction times, and drunk driving can be deadly. Be a responsible driver, use these tips and drive sober.
According to the NHTSA, in 2020, there were 11,654 people killed nationwide in drunk driving crashes accounting for nearly one-third of the crash fatalities that year.
- However, drunk driving is more prevalent during the holidays. During New Year’s and Christmas periods in 2020, there were 209 drunk-driving-related fatalities.
Enjoy the holiday season but do it in a safe manner so that you, your loved ones and others do not suffer the consequences of an alcohol-related accident.
