The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, but for too many families, they are filled with tragedy. In fact, 43% of driving fatalities on Christmas Day are alcohol-related.
During this time of year when drunk driving crashes are most prevalent, MADD urges everyone to do their part in keeping our roads safe this holiday season by:
- Planning safe parties
- Sending your loved ones one of our Holiday eCards to remind them to drive safe and sober
- Reviewing our How to Spot a Drunk Driver page before heading out on the road
- Giving the Gift of a Designated Driver
As you celebrate the holidays this year please remember to put safety before the party this holiday season by assigning a sober designated driver to get everyone home, and remind others to do the same.
