New Year’s Eve Drunk Drivers
Many Americans choose to consume alcohol while ringing in the New Year. There are often parties and celebrations to attend. All too often, over-consumption and automobiles become a deadly combination.
The New Year’s Holiday
New Year’s Eve (NYE) and New Year’s Day fall on specific dates so the days of the week vary. When NYE falls on a Wednesday or Thursday, many Americans enjoy an extended weekend. The celebrations tend to carry over and can result in a four or even five-day holiday period. When this occurs, fatalities will increase because of the extended holiday period. Since NYE is a Saturday in 2022, the fatalities should be lower than they might otherwise be since most people will be returning to work on Monday, January 2nd.
Drunk Driving on New Year’s
The National Safety Council predicted more than 400 fatalities for the 2021 New Year’s holiday season. While the actual data has not yet been released, there have been many hard-to-predict variables, including the COVID-19 pandemic, which have seriously impacted the number and size of social gatherings and led to more people staying home for the holiday.
Take Precautions and Plan Ahead
Although many factors have caused the data to be dramatically different from year to year, the one constant has been the high number of fatalities due to drunk driving. Fatal crashes where alcohol is involved skyrocket on New Year’s Eve. It is important to take precautions, like arranging a designated driver and assisting friends with alternative ways home, to ensure that your celebration ends safely.
