Providence, Rhode Island (PRWEB) December 28, 2012
The holiday season in Rhode Island is notorious for drinking and driving car accident and other personal injuries. According to statistics from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alchoholism, during Christmas and New Years 2-3 times more people die in alcohol related crashes. In 2010, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 415 drinking and driving car accidents resulting in death in the last two weeks of December alone.
With the holidays approaching, the RI auto accident attorneys at The Bottaro Law Firm remind all drivers to be safe behind the wheel and suggest the following safe driving tips:
- Pace yourself. Know what constitutes a standard drink and have no more than one per hour.
- Have “drink spacers”—make every other drink a nonalcoholic one.
- Make plans to get home safely. Remember that a designated driver is someone who hasn’t had any alcohol, not simply the person in your group who drank the least.
