Sober Days for the Holidays
DUI Resource Center

Each year, winter holiday and New Year’s Eve celebrations ring in a dramatic increase in DUI offenses, binge drinking, and other alcohol-related issues. And with the Christmas and New Year’s Eve holidays falling on weekends this year, the risks of increased drinking and driving may be even higher.

  • From 2017 – 2021 during the December, there were over 4,500 people killed in alcohol-impaired crashes. In December 2021 alone, 1,013 people died in alcohol-impaired crashes.
  • During the Christmas and New Year’s Eve periods in 2019, there were 210 drunk driving-related fatalities (NHTSA)
  • New Year’s Day is one of the most dangerous holidays of the year, with a 129% increase in drunk driving-related deaths compared to other days of the year (NHTSA, USDOT)
  • Because the Christmas and New Year’s Eve holidays fall on weekends this year, drunk driving fatalities are expected to increase

Holiday stressors of grief and loss, family and work pressures, and finances can make staying sober even harder. Give the gift of awareness and share these resources with your community. Together, let’s Celebrate Sobriety and make a happy and safe holiday season!

SCRAM CAM Programs Are Making a Difference

Giving the Gift of Hope

SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring is helping communities across the U.S. address alcohol-impaired driving during the holidays. Family and financial stressors and holiday celebrations create temptations and pressure for clients to drink. Alcohol monitoring can be a key factor in helping these clients get to a new year sober and compliant. In fact, 92% of high-risk DUI clients said 24/7 alcohol monitoring helped them stay sober during the holidays.

Learn more about how SCRAM CAM is driving compliance, accountability, and assessment in drunk and impaired driving programs nationwide. 

If it weren’t for SCRAM CAM, I’d be in jail and/or still drinking.
It has helped keep me sober for almost a year. Lifesaver!
