Caution Ahead: New Year’s Ranks as Deadliest Day on U.S. Roads
Date:12/26/2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) December 26, 2012

As Americans prepare for holiday celebrations, AAA reminds drivers and passengers alike of the dangers on the roads this New Year’s Day, which consistently ranks as the year’s deadliest day for alcohol-related fatalities.

To prevent these dangers, nearly eight in 10 Americans support requiring ignition interlocks for all convicted DUI offenders, even if it’s their first conviction.

Research has identified ignition interlock devices (IIDs) as a proven way to save lives.
