Drunk Drivers Often Hit the Road Around Memorial Day

DUI Lawyers in MOWhile holidays can be a break from work and a time to celebrate, they are also one of the most dangerous times to be on the roads. This is true of almost any holiday that traditionally involves gatherings of family and friends. These gatherings often involve alcohol, and many people attempt to drive their cars home after drinking too much.

  • The upcoming Memorial Day weekend is no different. The risks may be high during this holiday for several reasons, including:
  • The holiday is celebrated over a three-day weekend, which means many people will be traveling or celebrating all weekend long.
  • This weekend marks the end of the school year for many students, so teens will be out celebrating the beginning of summer.
  • Unlike other holidays that may focus on children, involve gift-giving, or have religious aspects, the classic Memorial Day celebration involves barbecue and beer – so drinking is a focus of these celebrations.
  • Camping, floating, boating, and similar activities are popular over Memorial Day weekend, many of which involve drinking.

Aside from the above reasons, many people drive while intoxicated over Memorial Day weekend out of sheer recklessness and lack of concern for others on the road. Whether their judgment is too impaired to make proper decisions or they overestimate their abilities to drive drunk, impaired drivers put everyone else on the roads at risk.

A drunk driving accident can ruin your Memorial Day and may disrupt your life for months or years. Injuries from drunk driving accidents can cause the following damages, among others:

  • Costly medical bills
  • Lost income from missing work
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering
  • Losing enjoyment of your life
  • Permanent disabilities and impairments
