Hastings & Hastings Considers DUI and Accident Statistics

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Phoenix, AZ - Jan 15, 2016 - These statics show that certain days of the year, and certain times of day are particularly dangerous in regards to the likelihood of being involved in a collision with an impaired driver.

The NHTSA reports that on average, 36 fatalities occur each day in the United States as a result of a collision involving an intoxicated driver. This daily average rises and falls over the course of the year. It is at its highest during the holiday season, approaching 45 fatalities a day around Christmas and spiking at 54 per day over the New Year’s holiday.

“I think the numbers provided to us by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration are an amazing tool we can use to combat accidents involving intoxicated drivers,”

Dave Hastings, Founder

Hastings & Hastings notes that the data supplied by the NHTSA shows a clear correlation between the holiday season and an increase in intoxicated driving. Hastings & Hastings further believes that this is an excellent opportunity to restate that drivers should never get behind the wheel of a car while they are intoxicated. An increase in alcohol consumption, combined with high traffic due to holiday travelers can make for dangerous conditions on the road.

 Hastings & Hastings counsel individuals to plan ahead if they are going to be traveling and possible consuming alcoholic beverages. Appointing a designated driver is a reliable way for individuals to assure themselves that they will have a ride home at the end of the night. Alternatively, taxis and ride sharing services such as Uber and Lyft are dependable and safe means of transportation.

 The NHTSA statistics show that the danger has how passed. The summer months of July and August are equally as deadly as the holiday season. Hastings & Hastings encourages everyone to drive safely and avoid risks through the entire year.

“I think the numbers provided to us by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration are an amazing tool we can use to combat accidents involving intoxicated drivers,” said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.
