Good company and good cheer are plentiful during the holiday season. But all too often the festivities turn tragic on the nation's roads. The holiday season is also one of the deadliest of the year due to drunk-driving crashes.
The key to safety any time of year is to Plan Ahead. It’s easy—designate a sober driver at the beginning of the night or plan for a taxi or other ride-sharing service to take you to and from your destination. If you are hosting a party, collect the keys at the beginning of the night and have non-alcoholic beverages available to those who are driving.
