The winter holiday season is one that people look forward to year after year. This time of year not only provides us with a nice break from the stresses of school and work, but it also is the most popular time of year for heading back home and catching up with friends and family. For some, this could mean taking a nice family vacation to get away from the chilly weather of winter. For others, winter break means the joyful task of driving or flying back to your home town to reunite to catch up with long lost relatives.
Plus, with the all of the festive holidays that fall between the months of November and January, there is no better time to throw a party and celebrate the seasons with the people you care about the most. However, because the winter season is such a popular party season (with Thanksgiving, New Year’s and all holidays in between), there are also a large number of DWI arrests that happen during this time of the year.
It’s easy to lose track of just how many drinks you have had when you’re exchanging funny stories with old high school or college friends, or you have gotten lost in a long conversation with family members that you haven’t seen in ages. It is this very reason that leaves many people forgetting just how much they actually had to drink when the bar closes up and it is time to make their way home for the evening.
Plus, because most people spend the holidays out of town visiting their loved ones, many end up getting pulled over simply because they have difficulty navigating their way through strange streets, roads and highways. The winter weather doesn’t make this task any easier for people visiting cold weather states ripe with snow, ice and winter sludge. Anytime you add even a few beers or cocktails to this occasion, you’re really in trouble.
