New Years Day consistently ranks as the year's deadliest day for alcohol-related fatalities. According to AAA, most drivers who choose to get behind the wheel don't think they've had too much to drink. Yet, after a 6 pack of beer, drivers have a 44% chance to get in an accident.
And if you don't think you'll get caught, think again. More than 2/3 of DUI convictions are first time offenders.
Local authorities say they will have increased patrols out on the roads for the holiday.
