Groups warn of Cinco de Mayo drinking and driving

The New Hampshire State Police and local law enforcement agencies will be on the lookout for impaired drivers during Cinco de Mayo.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency says from 2008 to 2012, 233 people in the United States were killed in drunken driving crashes on May 5. In 2012, nearly half of the traffic crash fatalities on that day involved drunken driving, almost double the number from 2011.

The New Hampshire Department of Safety said only three people were killed in alcohol-related crashes on New Hampshire roads during that period, but officials said even one fatality is one too many.

The New Hampshire Driving Toward Zero Coalition, a group public and private organizations emphasizing safety on the road, is encouraging everyone to plan ahead and never drink and drive.
