The holiday season is upon us, which means more adults will be consuming alcoholic drinks and in higher quantities. This time of year also puts more people on the roads, as they travel to see family and friends, near and far. It makes sense, then, that this season becomes one of the most dangerous times of the year for alcohol-related
accidents and fatalities.
One factor that contributes to increased drinking is the amount of stress that tends to accompany the holidays, and more people unfortunately turning to alcohol in an attempt to ease that pressure. Another major reason drinking spikes is because there are simply more opportunities to drink socially due to the various parties.
Depending on where you live, this time of the year can also bring dangerous road conditions. Adding alcohol to the mix is no doubt dangerous and, far too often, deadly.
