DON’T BE A TURKEY. DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE
Thanksgiving Eve Now Known as “Blackout Wednesday”
One of the most troubling trends of the season is a substantial rise in binge drinking and DUIs on Thanksgiving Eve. The day before Thanksgiving has become particularly high-risk for college students, and bars in some urban areas report seeing more business on that day than St. Patrick’s Day or New Year’s. AMS reports that alcohol violations are as much as 37% higher on Blackout Wednesday–a larger jump than on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas.
