Binge Drinking from Christmas to New Year’s Day

The period of time from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day has the highest incidents of binge drinking and related public health problems compared to any other holiday.

The U.S. Department of Transportation reports that 300 Americans die each year in the handful of days surrounding Christmas. In 2016, in the month of December alone, 3,067 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes. Of those, 781 (25%) lost their lives in drunk-driving crashes.

Your choice to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol could very quickly turn someone’s holiday to tragedy, and it could even be your own. Play it smart, don’t drink and drive!
