Types of distracted drivers you will find over the holidays

The holiday season is the perfect time to bring people closer together. Unfortunately, it also brings thousands of drivers and their vehicles closer together as well. In the last 5 years, December has had the third most amount of reported motor vehicle crashes out of all the months in North Carolina.

With the amount of traveling and shopping going on during the holiday season, drivers of all sorts of skill levels and experience take to the roads. It also brings about several distracted drivers that are not seen as often during the year. As you make your daily commutes, get your Christmas shopping done and prepare your trip to Grandma’s house, you should be aware of these dangerous drivers you will share the streets with.

Factors that influence reasonable suspicion for drunk driving

The holiday season can be one of the most hectic times of the year for almost any worker. Retail and grocery stores have to work extra hours to satisfy the excess of shoppers coming, and employees with families have to make plans for their days off to travel or spend time with their children. The roads will fill with those performing their holiday errands or travelers coming to see their relatives.

It is also one of the busiest times for police officers as well. The holidays in late November and December feature an excess of drunk drivers on the road putting others in danger as they celebrate their time off. With police on high alert, motorists will have to be extra careful of their behavior on the road. An officer can pull someone over based on reasonable suspicion that they may be driving while intoxicated. While they base most of it upon the driver’s actions on the road, there are several other variables that impact their decision. Motorists should be aware of these factors so they can take precaution before getting behind the wheel.
