Holidays can be a risky time for highway travel no matter where you live. With more people on the road and a larger proportion of drivers impaired by alcohol, drivers face an increased risk of being involved in an accident. Goodman Acker P.C. has put together the following infographic with eye-opening statistics to remind you of the importance of not drinking before you drive.
Drunk driving accidents injure and kill thousands of people every year. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), in the past year in Michigan, alcohol related crashes totaled 8,892, with 255 fatalities. This works out to approximately one accident every 90 seconds. These accidents are entirely preventable.
