The start of cooler weather means that the holidays are right around the corner. Unfortunately, during this time there is a significant rise in drunk driving incidents.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 40% of traffic related deaths during the holidays are the result of drunk drivers.  Between 2-3x more people die in alcohol-related crashes between Thanksgiving and New Year’s than any other time of the year.

Even with less people traveling due to the pandemic, danger on the roads still exists. More than 16% of adults admit to drinking more than usual during the holidays, and this year that percentage might even be higher.
