The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is currently publicizing their Halloween-themed anti-drunk driving campaign. Although Halloween can be a fun-filled family holiday with plenty of candy and costumes, it's not without risk on roadways in North Carolina and across the nation. According to the NHTSA, Halloween drunk-driving crash fatalities are on the rise. In 2011, there were 17 Halloween drunk-driving fatalities on U.S. roadways. In 2015, there were 55 deaths. The number of drunk driving fatalities on Halloween has been steadily increasing on an annual basis. This year, the NHTSA is reminding partygoers that buzzed driving is drunk driving too.
