In a post earlier this week, we told you that Halloween is one of the deadliest nights of the year for drunk driving accidents, according to the National Highway Safety Administration. In fact, while about 30 percent of fatal car accidents involve alcohol on any given day, that proportion shoots up to 50 percent on Halloween.
Since Halloween falls on a Friday this year, drunk driving is especially of concern. In response, many law enforcement agencies throughout California are planning DUI enforcement initiatives over the weekend. Unfortunately, though, police probably won’t be able to stop all drunk drivers before something tragic occurs.
