December is a notoriously dangerous time of the year for impaired driving, and Florida officials say they are stepping up patrols as well as an education campaign in an effort to make the state's roadways safer.
From December 23, 2016 to January 2, 2017, there were 193 drug and/or alcohol-related crashes on Florida roadways, resulting in 36 fatalities, state officials said. Although alcohol confirmed crashes have decreased 15 percent from 2014, drug confirmed crashes have risen 50 percent from 2014.
