Drunk Driving Archives

Drunk driving deaths continue to rise

Roughly one-third of deadly car accidents involve drivers who have had too much to drink. Perhaps it should come as no surprise then that the general increase in traffic deaths over the past two years has included an increase in drunk driving fatalities. Last year, there were 10,265 such fatalities. This year, that number is expected to rise. With one of the deadliest nights of the year for drinking and driving accidents right around the corner, it is a good time to reconsider the problem of drunken motorists.

Don't leave safety to chance when celebrating St. Patrick's Day

On St. Patrick's Day, many festivities will be taking place throughout Chicago. Whether you're out with friends or enjoying the day with family, celebrate responsibly and consider the potential consequences that can arise when having a few turns into a few too many.

Chances of Dying from Drunk Driver up 150 Percent on New Year's

Roughly 80 people die each year from drunk driver car accidents on New Year's Day, as reported by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. That figure illustrates a 150 percent increase in the chances of one dying in an alcohol-related crash when comparing it to an average day this time of year.

Thanksgiving is Biggest Holiday for Drunk Driving

As you spend time with friends and family this Thanksgiving, you should take special care during your travels. While many believe that New Years' Eve, St. Patrick's Day or the Super Bowl present the greatest threat from drunk drivers, it is typically "Turkey Day" that takes the infamous spot each year.
