in homage to Black Friday as the day after Thanksgiving, the day before Turkey
Day has earned the nickname of Blackout Wednesday. One of its other monikers further
clarifies the name: Drinksgiving. It’s the night when college kids come home
and reconnect with friends, when family meets up in happy reunions, when the
holiday season officially kicks off – and the alcohol is plentiful. Sadly, drunk driving car accidents abound
Thanksgiving Travel Dangers for Motorists
Wednesday is the biggest drinking day of the year in many parts of the United
States, more alcohol-soaked than New Year’s Eve and Super Bowl Sunday and
graduation parties and the Fourth of July. Unfortunately, Thanksgiving is also
one of the busiest travel times of the year and the roads are packed with
motorists on the way to or from their holiday destinations. The combination can
it’s important to focus on travel safety at this time of year and look out for distracted drivers, impatient
drivers, drowsy drivers, aggressive drivers, and reckless drivers. But on
Blackout Wednesday, you must be alert to all these drivers – as well as the
reality that many of them could be intoxicated at the same time.
The Origin of Blackout Wednesday
Wednesday is a fairly new term, coined only a few years ago to describe a spike
in alcohol sales at this time of year, but this cultural phenomenon is now
readily used in marketing efforts by bars, restaurants, and other places of
revelry to promote their drinks and special events. The name is derived from
the binge drinking that is common to the night before Thanksgiving, with “binge”
defined as five or more drinks in a row for men and four or more drinks in a
row for women. This high-risk drinking can lead to blackouts and, not surprisingly,
sales go up, driving capabilities go down, but people still get behind the
wheel after drinking on Blackout Wednesday. Many people make the smart decision
about drinking and driving and call an Uber, but whether you’re on the roads as
a passenger or driver, you’re still at risk for motorists who haven’t made the
same cautious choice.
Make It Home for the Holidays
800 people died in car crashes on Blackout Wednesday between 2013 and 2017,
according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2018 alone,
133 people died in alcohol-related crashes from Wednesday at 6 p.m. to the
Monday morning after Thanksgiving.
drinking is highlighted thanks to the attention given to Blackout Wednesday,
but it’s also encouraged by marketers and business owners. Organizations like
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) promote the use of the hashtag
#BoycottBlackoutWednesday to show support for a more sober Thanksgiving Eve.
you drink, don’t drive. If you drive, don’t drink. These are simple but weighty
