DUI Checkpoints Across Nation on Memorial Day Weekend

The police authorities across the country are planning heightened DUI enforcement activities during Memorial Day holiday in an effort to curb the number of people driving under the influence.

New Year's Eve may get a bad rap when it comes to highway safety, but Memorial Day weekend doesn't come far behind as one of the most dangerous times of the year to be on the road.

Along with warm weather and start of the vacation season, it's also the season for college and high school graduations. The start of the summer season on this 3-day holiday weekend will find law enforcement reminding everyone to make plans now for those weekend trips and celebrations.

According to research compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which tracks car crash statistics, drunk driving fatalities are highest during the weekends of Memorial Day, Labor Day and on Independence Day.

NHTSA reports 397 deaths from car accidents over Memorial Day Weekend in 2010; 40 percent of these were alcohol-related.  Stay safe and plan out your transportation if you will be drinking away from home.
