How You Can Help Decrease the Amount of DUI Accidents During the Month of December

How You Can Help Decrease the Amount of DUI Accidents During the Month of December

In December, roadways become more saturated and dangerous than ever. With holiday celebrations on almost every corner, many drunk driving accidents occur during the holiday season. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports the amount of DUIs and fatal drunk driving collisions increases substantially during the last month of the year. In December 2012, 830 people died in car accidents involving a drunk driver.

Now, President Barack Obama has deemed December National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. To do so, the President asks people to do the following:

  • Drive responsibly.
  • Drive only while sober.
  • Focus on the road and driving conditions.
  • Encourage others to practice safe driving practices.

Below are some things you can do to participate in the new act:

  • Never drive while under the influence of prescription drugs.
  • Do not operate a vehicle after consuming alcoholic beverages.
  • If you do choose to drink, call a friend or close family member to drive you home.
  • Contact a taxi service to get you home safely.
  • Never text and drive (not even at red lights).
  • Do not drive if you are sleepy.
  • If your friend has been drinking, take their keys so they can’t drive until they are sober.
