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.

How can party hosts prevent drunk driving accidents?

Have you ever heard someone blame a bar or restaurant for causing a drunk driving accident after overserving the driver? The reality is that many drunk drivers are not coming from bars. They're simply coming from homes or apartments owned by friends, family members, coworkers or, if they're in college, fellow students.

The impact of alcohol on drivers and why it leads to car crashes

Moderate alcohol use in a controlled environment can be safe, but excessive use -- which is often not as much as people think -- by those who then get behind the wheel can turn deadly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that one person is killed in a DUI crash every 50 minutes. This results in 29 deaths per day, and that's not even counting non-fatal injury accidents.
