New Year’s Eve is notorious for drunk driving. In fact, the holiday is listed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as having the second highest incidence of drunken driving arrests and accidents. As a result, the Erie County Sheriff’s Department worked hard to get impaired motorists off the street during the holiday.

WIVB 4 News reports that deputies responded to several calls resulting in four Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) arrests. The first accident occurred at around 6 p.m. on Stony Point Road in Grand Isle, New York. A 60-year-old Akron man was arrested for a second-offense DWI, causing the charges to be bumped to a felony. An hour later, a 50-year-old Kenmore man was arrested on Route 219 near the Town of Boston.

At around 1:20 a.m., a 54-year-old man from Angola was charged in North Collins after hitting a guardrail in a Buffalo Car Accident. Less than an hour later, a 37-year-old man was arrested after returning to the scene of a domestic violence call. The man was double the legal blood alcohol limit.

Drunk driving is said to be the leading cause of fatal and serious motor vehicle accidents in the United States. That is why the Car Accident Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices encourage anyone injured by a drunk driver to contact a qualified attorney immediately to discuss your legal rights.
