The holidays are a reason for family and friends to come together after a long year apart. It’s a joyous time to attend parties, visit friends, and travel home to see loved ones. As you head to your local liquor store to stock up on your fill of eggnog and holiday spirits, consider the risk you run of either driving drunk or enabling others to drive drunk. This holiday season, play it safe — don’t drink and drive.
Most Dangerous Holidays
During the holiday season, the number of travelers on the road increase drastically as friends and family travel to visit loved ones. While Thanksgiving, New Year’s Eve, and Independence Day rank as the most dangerous holiday travel dates, the number of DUI-related traffic stops often increases by 33% on Christmas Eve as a result of overindulgence at holiday parties (according to a study completed in 2015). The U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reports that 40% of traffic-related deaths during Christmas and New Year’s involve drunk drivers. This is a 12% increase over the rest of the month of December.
Don’t Be An Enabler
If you’re hosting a party, ensure that your guests have a designated driver or a ride home. If you’re supplying alcohol to a party of people that are not spending the night at your residence, the sensible option is for you, as the host, to arrange transportation. A chauffeured limousine service, such as the Extraordinar Limousine, can transport multiple guests to and from their destination safely and professionally.
