GREENSBORO, N.C. — Statistics show drinking and driving is the most troubling factor in roadway accidents on New Year’s Eve. The holiday is traditionally marked by champagne toasts and all-night open bar specials.
According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 30 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes every day. That’s one person every 50 minutes. Statistics also show 10,511 people died due to drunk-driving crashes in 2018.
During the New Year’s and Christmas periods in 2018, there were 285 drunk-driving-related fatalities. For those reasons and more, the NHTSA is partnering with local law enforcement to spread three life-saving messages: “Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over,” “If You Feel Different, You Drive Different,” and “Drive High Get A DUI.”
The NHTSA offers the following driving safety tips:
Tip #1: Drive with care.
Tip #2: Take care of your car.
Tip #3: Know where you can find a ride.
Tip #4: Take a driver safety class.
