Holiday season means drunk drivers on the road

Over the course of their lives, nearly three in every ten Americans will be involved in a motor vehicle accident that involves the influence of alcohol. Even though we should all be aware of the dangers of drinking and driving, statistics like the previous one show how drivers continue to ignore the facts. Because some drivers continue to ignore these dangers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made December "National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month."

Each day, nearly seven hundred people are injured and thirty-six people die in the United States because of motor vehicle accidents that involved drivers who were under the influence of alcohol. Even though efforts such as minimum legal drinking age laws and sobriety checkpoints have reduced the number of impaired drivers on the road, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in conjunction with the CDC wishes to remind people that they should continue to take safety steps especially around the holidays.

If you plan on hosting a holiday party over the next month, be sure to remind your guests that they should plan ahead to make sure that they have a designated driver. Hosts should also help make sure that no guest leaves without a sober driver. Individuals should also plan on assigning a sober driver before going out. When all else fails, take the keys away from anyone who has been drinking and threatens to drive. Your own efforts and the efforts of your community and the state of Pennsylvania will reduce the number of car accidents caused by impaired drivers.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident by a drunk driver, call Dugan & Associates for a free consultation today at 412-353-3572 or 800-639-4314.
