Are fatal drunk driving crashes more common in December?

When a family loses someone they love to a drunk driver, a whirlwind of hardships may ensue. Not only is unimaginable emotional pain common, but many also face financial difficulties due to funeral expenses and other costs. To make things worse, this problem can be particularly widespread during December as people celebrate the holidays. If your loved one's life was taken by a drunk driver, it is vital for you to seek justice.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the holiday season in December is known as the most deadly time of the year with regard to drunk driving crashes. There are a variety of reasons why more lives are lost during the holidays in comparison to other times of the year. For one, many people take to the road after consuming alcohol at a family celebration or bar. People may have become so distracted by interactions with relatives they have not seen in years that they forgot they even consumed alcohol when they got behind the wheel. Moreover, some people may drive drunk following a Christmas party at a bar.

Regardless of the factors that might contribute to drunk driving during the holidays, this behavior is inexcusable. Sadly, far too many lives have been cut short by recklessness and those who disregard traffic safety laws by operating a vehicle when they are intoxicated by alcohol or drugs should be held answerable. Sadly, it is inevitable that more lives will be lost this holiday season and in the years to come.
