Driving on U.S. roads can be dangerous on any given day, but certain days of the year pose bigger threats to motorists than others. Unsurprisingly, holidays pose the biggest threat to drivers in terms of fatal car accidents.
Not only are more people on the road as a result of time off work, but people are also more relaxed and may not be paying as close attention to the road as they should be. Additionally, more people tend to drive while intoxicated on holidays. These two factors are a dangerous combination and lead to more accident fatalities year after year.
According to SafeMotorist.com, the following is true:
