Dangerous Holidays for Driving

4 of 11

New Year's Eve/New Year's Day

With an average of 140 deaths (based on statistics from 2002 to 2008), New Year's Day is the second most deadly day for drivers, according to Anne Fleming of the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety.

Pedestrians are at an elevated risk on these days as well, perhaps due to alcohol consumption and/or inclement weather.

As you might expect, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics show that, in comparison to other holidays, a higher percentage (42%) of traffic deaths over this holiday period were due to drunk driving.
