With Halloween over, the 2011 holiday season is officially in underway. With these holidays comes a big step-up in Arizona DUI enforcement. This means more DUI charges, fines, and convictions. It’s true that people tend to drink more this time of year and it’s law enforcement’s responsibility to make sure the roads are safe. And the people running the Arizona DUI enforcement don’t just go off the basis that they think people are drinking and driving more during this time of year. The numbers below are proof.
From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve of 2004, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 3,511 total traffic fatalities nationally. 37% of those fatalities (approximately 1,316) were alcohol-related. Thanksgiving was first with 179 alcohol-related fatalities, Christmas second with 147 and New Year’s Eve third with 42.
