The holidays are widely cherished time of year, as many people will be
returning home, visit other cities or states, or are hit with the strong
urge to travel. Some of us travel to visit with family and friends we
have not seen for a while, . It is one of the busiest times of the year
for long-distance traveling. People drive an estimate of 50 miles or more
every holiday to visit family and friends.
The holidays usually bring joyful occasions, a and yet, sadly it is also
one of the most dangerous times of the year to travel. The number of people
on the road, including more reckless and negligent drivers (drunk drivers,
as an example), and snowy or icy weather all contribute to making the
roads much less safer.
Here are what are considered to be the most dangerous elements for holiday ddrivers:
- Drunk drivers
- Distracted driving
- Driving under pressure (for example, drivers speeding to get to there destination,
failing to stop completely at stop signs or red lights, failing to yield
to others’ right of way)
- Drowsy driving
The vast number of the accidents that occur are alcohol-related. Alcohol
impairs a driver’s perception, sense of judgment, and reaction time—all
of the things that they must be conscience of when driving, particularly
around the holidays when there is an increased risk of accident and subsequently,
injury. It is not uncommon for a driver to be not only intoxicated while
driving, but also performing other unsafe driving maneuvers or making
poor driving decisions.
