Morris Bart is proud to announce the start of his firm’s “Safe Driving during the Holidays” program. Bart and his attorneys will encourage safe driving by educating civilians of the dangers of holiday travel. With the help of motivated citizens, Morris Bart hopes to decrease the holiday auto accident rate substantially.
The holiday season is a great time to spend with family and friends, but drivers cannot forget to exercise caution. According to Forbes, the average person travels 275 miles to celebrate Christmas or New Year’s Eve. This huge spike in travel distance translates into a large number of accidents, and, unfortunately, fatalities. The holiday season is not only dangerous because of long car rides but also inclement weather, heavy traffic and, most importantly, the possibility of people driving under the influence.
According to the U.S. National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 40% of traffic-related deaths during Christmas and New Year’s involve drunk drivers. People are more likely to drive drunk on New Year’s Day than any other day of the year. Remember, tipsy driving is still drunk driving. Nothing is worth the risk of a DUI, or worse, an accident.
Regardless of the situation at hand, always be wary of surrounding cars. The best way to avoid an accident over the holiday season is to be a defensive driver.
Please join the Law Offices of Morris Bart and pledge to be a safe driver this holiday season.
