As the Fall and Winter holidays approach expect to see an increase in the number of drunk driving arrests and accidents. Starting with the non-traditional holiday of Halloween, the number of adults attending Halloween parties is as numerous as the number of trick-or-treaters to show up on your doorstep.
The last quarter of the year brings families and friends together for celebrations, meaning more people indulge in alcohol, sometimes overestimating their ability to drive. For family and friends, it may also be difficult to judge whether a loved one is incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle.
In 2011 in Texas alone, there were 1,039 people killed in motor vehicle accidents that involved a driver under the influence of alcohol. That number represents 34.5 percent of the total number of deaths in motor vehicle accidents overall.*
The attorneys at the Parker Law Firm law firm want you and your loved ones to enjoy the pleasure of each other’s company and to remain safe on the roads during the coming holiday season.
