The holidays are a dangerous time for driving — especially in the Minnesota winter.
In fact, a recent research note from the U.S. Department of Transportation reported that 1,087 people died in vehicle traffic crashes from Christmas to New Year's Day in 2018.
What causes car crashes around the holidays?
- inclement weather (poor visibility)
- road conditions (snow, ice, tighter lanes)
- alcohol or drug use
- distracted/negligent driving
- speeding and other reckless driving
- increased stress
Of course, these factors can lead to crashes almost anytime, but things are escalated during the holiday season. People tend to be more frazzled and stressed than usual around the holidays, and there are also more parties and occasions to imbibe.
