December is a festive time with many holidays where people engage in drinking alcohol. It makes it a good time for alcohol awareness campaigns such as “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” “Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving,” and National Impaired Driving Prevention Month.
No matter the name of the campaign, the bottom line is that drinking alcohol and driving do not mix. Alcohol use impairs judgment, delays reaction times, and can result in deadly consequences.
According to the NHTSA, nearly 37,500 people were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2016. 28% of these fatalities involved crashes with a driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at .08, which is the legal limit.
Every year, between Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, there is an even greater number of deaths due to drunk driving. In December alone, 781 people died in drunk driving-related accidents.
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.
