NHTSA Launches Winter Holiday Crackdown on Drunk Drivers

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(NHTSA) has a new press release about a national crackdown against impaired driving that involves thousands of law enforcement agencies throughout the country and runs through the New Year’s holiday.

“Drunk driving is one of the most serious, and preventable, dangers we face on our roadways,” NHTSA Acting Administrator David Kelly said. “Sadly, the death toll from drunk-driving crashes is higher between Christmas and New Year’s than any other time.”

A copy of a new statistical report, which provides state-by-state holiday drunk driving fatalities by age group, can be downloaded here.

Please have a safe and happy holiday season and remember that Virginia has some of the toughest impaired driving laws in the nation.
