As someone who works the overnight shift on weekends, there are certain times of the year you really dread.  One of them is the period right after high school and college graduations.  Crashes spike.  Injuries.  Many of the victims are young people who are out celebrating.  Alcohol is often involved.  Many times, it's just youthful carelessness.

It appears the other dreaded time of the year began early.  Early and mid December weekends is Christmas party time.  It's the same as the summer danger period.  Crashes spike.  People get hurt.  Or worse.  We seemed to have more than the usual number of crashes over Thanksgiving weekend.  Anomaly?  Perhaps.  Party season beginning early?  Could be.

I have nothing against the responsible use of alcohol, but do us all a favor and stay off the roads.
