NSC estimates nearly 800 total fatalities from car crashes this Christmas and New Year’s holiday periods

Itasca, IL, Dec. 15, 2014 – The National Safety Council released its traffic fatality estimates for the Christmas Day and New Year’s Day holiday periods. NSC estimates 366* deaths and another 39,200 injuries requiring medical attention may occur because of car crashes during the Christmas Day holiday period. An estimated 421^ deaths and 45,000 injuries requiring medical attention may occur during the New Year’s Day holiday period. Seat belts could save an estimated 134 lives during the Christmas Day holiday period and 154 lives during the New Year’s Day holiday period.

NSC recommends the following tips to stay safe:

  • Buckle up every trip, every time – even when traveling short distances
  • Refrain from using electronic devices – including hands-free – behind the wheel
  • Secure children in size-appropriate restraints
  • Do not drink and drive, as impairment begins with the first drink – if you drink, designate a sober driver or take alternate transportation
  • Plan ahead and drive defensively, especially during bad weather
  • Never drive when you are tired – get plenty of sleep before your trip and plan regular stops

The Christmas Day holiday period begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 24 and ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 28. The New Year’s Day holiday period begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 31 and ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 4, 2015. Find more seasonal safety tips at nsc.org.
