NYE Drinking and Driving Statistics – Share with your family & friends before they head out to celebrate!

When it comes to drinking, driving should never be an option. Before you get behind the wheel this NYE after a few drinks think again. It is a commonly known fact that there are more alcohol related car accidents on New Year’s Eve than most other nights. Compared to the average weekend night, the 12-hour window between 6 p.m. on Dec. 31 and 6 a.m. on Jan. 1 tends to have about 71% more crashes where alcohol or drugs are listed as a contributing factor.

Facebook LIVE has Proven to be Fatal for some Users

In the last few weeks two incidents have happened where drivers that were under the influence, got on Facebook LIVE to showoff to their ‘friends.’ In one of the events, a Florida man was on a mission to mow over beach goers in his car while driving drunk. The man was even drinking during the incident. During the Facebook LIVE stream, you could see police vehicles chasing him as he ran over beach chairs and swerved toward people. Luckily, the suspect was apprehended and no one was harmed.

In the second incident, a California woman was driving under the influence, while she was fidgeting with her phone, she runs something over while on Facebook LIVE. The woman jumps out of the car and finds that she had run over her sister, killing her. It is clear that the driver was under the influence because she continues to stream her trying to wake her sister up and saying “I know I’m going to jail, I did it, RIP.” The video is extremely graphic, so if you do come across it, be aware. Check out the article here.

The importance of driving sober cannot be stressed enough. Although the trend of using Facebook LIVE for everyday events seems like a good idea, it DOES NOT make it okay to put yours or the lives of others at risk for ‘likes.’

How to Enjoy Cinco De Mayo Without a DUI

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), around 38 percent of traffic fatalities that have occured each year on or around May 5 are alcohol related.

Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 6.21.11 PMIf you do need to drive – Enjoy drinks slowly and alternate with glasses of water. Stop drinking a few hours before driving, and make sure to eat food to soak up the alcohol in your stomach.

Ride sharing apps are all too common to still be driving home drunk. If you can’t afford a sober ride home, then throw a party at your own place or stay with a friend. Taking the risk of driving drunk isn’t worth your life or another’s.

Be mindful of other drivers. If you are the designated driver for the night, make sure that you are watching out for other drivers on the road. You never know if someone has decided to drive after having one too many and their vision and judgement is impaired.
