Labor Day Weekend and Drunk Driving Accidents

For many, the upcoming weekend signals the end of the summer. For others, Labor Day Weekend is the perfect reason for a three day party. In a community like the San Fernando Valley, where public transportation is not the first choice for many party-goers, this means more drunk drivers on the road. If you or your loved one are injured in an alcohol or drug related auto accident, know that the law is on your side.

Alcohol impairs one’s ability to operate a motor vehicle, such as a car or motorcycle, and is the reason for many serious auto accidents. According to recent statistics from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) drunk driving fatalities are on the rise.

  • 867 representing 28.9% of all total traffic deaths, a 4.6% increase from last year.
