Holiday Travel Increases Your Risk of Being in a Car Accident

December 14, 2022

The holiday season is a time for family, religious observance, celebration, parties, and shopping. Tragically, it is also a time for increased holiday traffic and drunk driving.

The weeks spanning Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day see a sharp rise in traffic congestion as well as an increase in drunk driving. Tragically, the holiday season sees a substantial number of fatal motor vehicle accidents. 

There are several factors that can cause a spike in car accidents during the holiday season. These factors include:

Drunk Drivers: Alcohol plays a significant role in celebrations. Consuming alcohol also impacts a person’s driving abilities, including vision, coordination, reaction time, and judgment. Diminished driving capabilities often leads to a severe motor vehicle accidents.

Drowsy Driving: Holiday travel means driving long distances to visit family and friends. Driving for several hours can cause the driver to feel sleepy and/or fatigued.  

Traffic Congestion: The holiday season is the most traveled time periods of the year and m people travel by car to parties, holiday shops, family celebrations, school holiday events, work parties, and more. This causes a lot of traffic congesion and anincreases a driver's risk of being in a severe motor vehicle accident.
