Holidays are always challenging. On the one hand, you get to see people who you haven’t seen in a long time. Family comes into town and you get to catch up on all the family gossip, but that also means that you have to deal with family that you may not always get along with. The current political climate has really done a number on families, friends, and even marriages. Some people have refused to engage with those who voted for the other candidate while some are still battling to prove that they were right. These conversations are hard and can be emotionally exhausting. These challenging times and conversations can be avoided or resolved at your local watering hole.
Drinking during the holidays is not uncommon. Just scroll through Facebook or Pinterest to see the latest trends in holiday drinks. Drinking during the holidays is how some people avoid talking to those challenging family members and dealing with those hard to deal with situations. There is nothing wrong with having a few drinks, but it can put you in situations that you never thought possible. An ordinary night can turn into tragedy, but you are not alone.
Holiday Drunk Driving Accidents
Last year, 2018, the California Highway Patrol’s Gold Gate Division stated that they arrested 1,140 people statewide for driving under the influence. To put that into perspective, that is more than 2 people a day. Since New Year this year was on a Tuesday, the partying was extra long causing 50 people to die in car crashes involving drug and alcohol-impaired drivers. When it comes to impaired driving, it’s not just the lives of the drivers, but their family members, friends, and employment.
