Wiesbaden – Lucky clover, horseshoes, mushrooms and the like are booming on January 1st, but unfortunately do not always have the desired effect: on hardly any other day of the year are there more traffic accidents involving alcohol. As reported by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), the police recorded an above-average number of accidents on January 1, 2020 in which alcohol was involved. A total of 375 accidents with personal injury were counted this year on New Year’s Day, 11 people were killed. In 232 of these accidents, one of the participants was under the influence of alcohol.

In the previous year, there were 208 traffic accidents involving alcohol on New Year’s Day, more than twice as many as the annual average (98). Compared to previous years, however, the number of accidents in which drunk road users were involved fell significantly: on the first day of the new millennium, the number was almost twice as high as in 2020; at that time there were 443 alcohol accidents.
