A HOLIDAY TRADITION NO ONE PREPARES FOR
Have You Been Injured by a Drunk Driver?
This time of year, everyone seems to be dusting off old family traditions as they prepare for the merriment on the horizon. The staple this month is, of course, enjoying plates full of delicious food with your closest family members and friends. Next month, you’ll likely dress up for an ugly-sweater party, exchange white-elephant presents, sip some eggnog, and watch “A Christmas Story” on TV at least 10 times. Alongside these joyous holiday customs, unfortunately, there are darker traditions associated with the season: increased alcohol misuse and drunk driving. There is a dramatic increase in DUI offenses and other alcohol- related issues in the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. In fact, the statistics are sobering. Drunk drivers are responsible for 40 percent of highway deaths that occur from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. Because people are traveling to see their families, more drivers are on the road. And because 16 percent of adults admit that they drink more than usual during the holidays, the plausibility of drunk-driving accidents is exponentially higher. In fact, Scram Systems predicts that by the end of this year, 25,000 people will be injured in alcohol- related traffic accidents.
