Drunk Driving Accidents Archives

Can parents prevent teen drunk driving?

Young teen drivers lack experience behind the wheel, which can increase their chances of being involved in a car accident. If they drink and drive, they become even more dangerous. They may become drowsy, unable to concentrate, prone to poor decisions and ultimately unable to control their vehicle.

Why are the weekends so dangerous for drivers?

The weekends pose a much higher risk to drivers than the work week. A recent study that looked at the statistics from 2016 showed that 6,802 deaths happened on Saturday, 5,826 happened on Friday and 5,809 happened on Sunday. Those are the three deadliest days by a long shot, with even the lowest (Sunday) bringing about hundreds more deaths than any weekday -- and over 1,000 more than the lowest weekday, which was Tuesday.

Drivers could still be drunk the morning after going out

Imagine that a person always tries to avoid drunk driving. That means taking the bus or a cab -- or an Uber -- home from the bar. It means catching a ride home from a party. It means never getting behind the wheel after a night of drinking.
