Hazardous Holiday Auto Accidents
Las Vegas During the Holidays
Las Vegas, entertainment capital of the world, a popular tourist destination, home to more hotel rooms than all of Europe. This city is used to welcoming visitors, as well as being home to a large and ever-growing community of our own. During the holidays, Las Vegas becomes even busier than usual, with winter travel and family visits. The amount of travelers plus the amount of locals Las Vegas has combine to make a staggering number of vehicles on the road, hurrying to their next holiday party.
The more vehicles we have operating on our roads, the busier and more packed these roads become, and the more likely auto accidents are to happen. It is no surprise to pass accidents on our highways, and it is almost to be expected at times, especially during peak hours when everyone is headed home from work or out to dinner or the newest show.
Around the holiday time, the potential for auto accidents grows even more. With family and friends in town visiting for Christmas and New Year’s, as well as Las Vegas simply being a pleasant place to get away during the winter, roads are filled to capacity. Distractions abound, from twinkling strings of lights, to animated holiday décor, to catching up with the guests on the way to your gathering, making the journey even more perilous.
In addition, DUI arrests, drunk driving, and fatal auto and motorcycle accidents increase tremendously, as celebrations and family get-togethers abound. Oftentimes, after the gift exchange, the potluck, and a classic Christmas movie, party-goers have downed a few alcoholic drinks before heading home for the night. Perhaps the holly jolly atmosphere clouds their judgment, but they decide to hit the road intoxicated and put themselves and others at risk by doing so.
