While drunk driving is an issue at any time throughout the year, it is particularly important to watch out for drunk drivers when there is a holiday or other occasion to celebrate. Celebrations, such as a barbecue for the Fourth of July, typically involve a lot of alcohol. Because such celebrations will be going on simultaneously and in large numbers, there is a greater chance that drunk drivers will be on the road, which in turn leads to a greater chance of a car accident. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert drunk driving attorney at 617-787-3700.
According to statistics collected in Texas, drunk driving incidents tend to increase around Labor Day. An average of 40 people have died over the last 5 Labor Day weekends, and authorities have suggested that over one-third of those deaths have been alcohol related. Accordingly, a AAA representative released a statement that encourages anyone attending Labor Day festivities to make sure that they have a safe ride to and from their destinations. As part of an effort to curb driving accidents in general, the group is also encouraging people to put their phones down while driving, particularly this weekend when there will likely be more drunk drivers on the road than usual.
