On top of those 25,000 injuries, 1,200 alcohol-related deaths will occur at the same time, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). These statistics (below) from the NHTSA should give you an even better idea as to the dangers, not just during the holidays, but throughout the year.
The solution? It’s simple, really: don’t drink and drive. Use services like Uber and Lyft, or a standard taxi in order to stay safe and stay off the road this holiday season. Even better yet, make sure you have a designated driver to ensure the safest travel to and fro.
While we want you to make the most out of the holidays, we also want you to be safe at the same time. Happy holidays from all of us here at Bold Ride!
