The Most Dangerous Holiday for Drinking & Driving

You might be surprised that New Year's Eve is not the most dangerous holiday for alcohol related traffic deaths and injuries. It turns out that Thanksgiving has that unfortunate distinction. The Thanksgiving holiday weekend is the most dangerous due to the high volume of people on the road and the fact that the holiday always begins on Thursday for a four-day-weekend of overindulgence. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's report on motor vehicle deaths, Thanksgiving weekend is number one and July 4th weekend is number two as the most dangerous holidays for drivers. The other long weekends of Memorial Day and Labor Day come in fourth and fifth most dangerous. New Years is number six because it often does not not fall on a weekend or near the weekend. 

Proper and Legal Speed Depends Upon Conditions- You Can Be Found Careless or Negligent Even If You are Driving at Posted Speed Limits

Michigan Law, MCL 257.627(1) and 257.626(2), require that drivers always consider both the weather conditions and road conditions when choosing what speed to drive. The law requires that you remain in control of you car at all times and be able to stop your car within a reasonable distance. Some people mistakenly believe that as long as they are at the speed limit, or under, they will not be ticketed or found to be negligent or careless in their driving. Michigan drivers must always maintain control of their vehicles depending on road conditions.
