The holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve is one of the busiest on the nation's roadways and also one of the most dangerous, due to a high incidence of drug and alcohol-related traffic crashes.

That's why AAA Arizona is joining with other national, state and local highway safety and law enforcement officials to remind everyone this holiday season to always designate a sober driver before each holiday party or event involving alcohol.

"The holiday season is supposed to be a time for family, friends, and festive celebrations, but it is unfortunately also a time when we see a tragic jump in the number of drug and alcohol-related highway fatalities each year between Thanksgiving and New Year's," said Linda Gorman, Public Affairs Manager for AAA.
