Happy Holidays
By MADD | December 22, 2011| 3 Comments | Filed in: Drunk Driving

The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, but for too many families, they are filled with tragedy.  In fact, 43% of driving fatalities on Christmas Day are alcohol-related. 


During this time of year when drunk driving crashes are most prevalent, MADD urges everyone to do their part in keeping our roads safe this holiday season by:

As you celebrate the holidays this year please remember to put safety before the party this holiday season by assigning a sober designated driver to get everyone home, and remind others to do the same.

Happy Holidays from your friends at MADD.

My husband and I were hit by a drunk driver on Christmas Eve. This was the last thing I could have expected that night after spending time with family. The man who hit us has had 2 prior DWI's....this was his 3rd. He went to jail for 3 days, but is apparently out. I'm amazed at our system. His trial is on January 18, 2011. I Just hope he shows up. If anyone can shed some light on what can be done to ensure he stays off the road, I would be so appreciative

What are you doing about cell phone use? Do you use a cell phone and have you been to prison for that use?

Your post should include some advice on how to spot a drunk before that drunk gets behind the wheel. What are the symptoms of having too many--which can be detected without breathalyzers and the like? What can sober partygoers do to keep them from driving?
