Throughout the United States, someone is hurt every two minutes – and someone dies every half hour – as a result of an alcohol-related accident. During the Holiday Season, the odds for drinking and driving accidents increase exponentially. The concept that just a couple of drinks are not a big deal is a myth: according to a University of California San Diego research study, people driving even with a blood level alcohol as little as 0.01% in their system are at risk of being involved in accidents that may cause injuries which are much more severe than in those accidents where alcohol is not involved. This lead the researchers to conclude that there is no level of alcohol that can be considered safe for driving a motor vehicle. So do yourself (and your loved ones) a favor this Holiday Season – if you drink, don’t drive. That advice is good not just for this holiday season, but for the entire year!
