Unfortunately, the Independence Day holiday period is one of the deadliest times for being on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that every 40 minutes and nearly 40 times a day, someone in the United States dies in an alcohol impaired traffic crash. NHTSA also reports: In 2007, 34 percent of all drivers involved in traffic related crashes dur- ing the Fourth of July holiday period had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. Of the 200 traffic related fatalities that occurred during the July 4th hol- iday period of 2007, 44 percent involved a driver or motorcyclist with a BAC of .08 or higher. "Despite the best efforts of police departments and law enforcement agencies, people who shouldn't be dri- ving are still on the road," said Linda Movnihan, Regional Sales Leader for the Midwest Region of Allstate Insurance. "Even when you're not on the road, you can help save lives by being a responsible party host, pre- venting friends and acquaintances from driving drunk and reporting sus- picious drivers." The national organization Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) lists the following warning signs for spot- ting a drunk driver on the road: Straddling lanes or driving on the center line Drifting or moving in a straight line at a slight angle to the roadway Driving with headlights off at night Erratic braking or stopping without cause Driving below the speed limit Slow response to traffic signals (sudden stop, delayed start) Nearly striking an object, curb, etc Weaving or zigzagging across the road Driving on the wrong side of the road or completely off the roadway Tailgating To protect families from drunk dri- vers over the July 4th holiday period, here are some life-saving tips from Make sure children are properly Allstate and the National Safety fastened in seatbelts or child safety Council: seats in the back seat every time they Don't ever drink and drive.
