Curse of the Eggnog
The holidays are here. Family. Good cheer. Office party hookups. Good times all around.
Drunk driving skyrockets in December. A third of all accidents on Christmas Eve are the result of drunk driving.
And things get even boozier on New Year’s Eve. Over 40 percent of accidents those nights are caused by drunks.
But accidents resulting from drinking and driving don’t just happen on those two days. The whole month of December is filled with accidents due to winter break from college, holiday parties, and looking back at the year in the rear-view mirror.
A lot of people think that insurance doesn’t cover drunk and drugged driving accidents. And maybe it shouldn’t. But it does.
Some drunk drivers have plenty of insurance. But most don’t.
Approximately 70 percent of drivers are either uninsured or underinsured. Amongst drunk driver the number jumps to at least 80 to 90 percent.
