MADD: Drunk driving deaths spike during holiday season

Posted: Updated:

"Mothers Against Drunk Driving" wants to remind everybody about the dangers of the upcoming holiday season.

Drunk driving deaths spike from Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve.

About a thousand people were killed in alcohol-related accidents during that time span in 2011.

A MADD survey found 73 percent of adults said they've seen someone trying to drive after drinking too much and 1 in 5 did nothing about it.

MADD is urging partygoers to have a designated driver in advance and to stop anyone from trying to drive after drinking.
