Why Teens Should Be Afraid This Halloween

We all love scary Halloween movies involving “teens in trouble”. However, it is real life that really poses a threat to teens.

According to data from the testing specialists at Alcohol Monitoring Systems, alcohol violations on the Saturday before Halloween this year will be 4½ times higher than a typical weekend.

That’s based on actual data form 500,000 DUI offenders monitored 24/7 for drinking.

Drinking violations on Halloween itself are also expected to jump 19 percent compared to average.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that between 2011 and 2015, 45 percent of road fatalities on Halloween resulted from drunk driving.

This is truly scary stuff.
