    Those are some crazy stats. I would have never guessed that TG was so high. Holidays in general are tough due to travel, but I would have thought deeper into the winter would be higher.

    Re: Most dangerous holiday

    I would say New Year's day as in on the way home from the bars if we are talking on the road...

    Edit: wow, not even top 5, I feel shame

    Re: Most dangerous holiday

    I would have thought 4th of July would have been up there somewhere. I guess I wasn't thinking over all fatalities though.
