The holidays are a festive time for Americans, and endless parties with friends, families, and co-workers can easily lead to drinking too much alcohol.  Drinking and driving accounts for one-third of vehicle-related fatalities in the United States. Keep your holidays merry and bright by remembering to always drive sober, no matter what.

Please note all work depends on weather conditions.
