DUI deaths spike on Fourth of July more than any other holiday

Drunk driving is a serious offense. In New York, someone arrested for a DUI could face a fine of up to $1,000, have their license suspended for at least six months and may even go to jail for up to a year. Unfortunately, every time there is a major holiday, the number of drunk drivers increases and, with it, the number of DUI accidents.

The number of DUI crash deaths reaches its peak on the Fourth of July, according to data from NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System. A total of 1,192 died in drunk driving accidents on this holiday from 2010 and 2017. This is a little more than the 1,105 who died on Memorial Day during the same time period.

Labor Day was the third deadliest holiday, which makes sense in light of what AAA said about the summer. The time between Memorial Day and Labor Day was even referred to as the “100 deadliest days of summer” by AAA. However, if one takes a span of four or five summer days and compares its DUI fatality risk to that of a Fourth of July weekend, the risk goes up nearly 60%.

Also, Independence Day is the deadliest when it falls on a Wednesday. The fatality rate is 52 when July Fourth falls on this mid-week day. It reaches its lowest, 36.3, on Saturdays.

In the event that drunk driving leads to a non-fatal motor vehicle collision, the victim(s) may be able to seek compensation from the guilty driver’s auto insurance company. However, a victim might want to start by approaching a lawyer for advice and guidance. The other side may not be willing to negotiate or may not agree to a reasonable amount in damages. In such cases, the victim could proceed to litigation together with their lawyer.
