Holiday Travel-Safety

By  | 

The Triple-A holiday travel forecast projects nearly 51 (m) million pople will be hitting the road in the United States for the Christmas and New Years holiday weekends.

That would be three percent more than last year's holiday driving and the first time the numbers would top 50 (m) million.

With that forecast comes heightened concern it could be a deadly time on the highways. There are expectations that more than 800 people will die in highway accidents over the two holidays -- 45 percent due to drunken drivers.

Police will be out in force again. And officials are saying there will be zero tolerance for drunken drivers.
