Nearly a third of Labor Day travelers will leave Friday for their holidays, with 60% driving, according to a survey done by TripAdvisor.

Every day in America, another 27 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Driving danger is higher than average during holiday periods.

During Labor Day weekend in 2010, 147 people were killed due to drunk driving in the U.S., according to NHTSA.

To stay safe this holiday weekend, plan your ride before drinking alcohol. Ride service apps like Uber are offering $20 off rides for first time users.

The legal blood alcohol content (BAC) in California is 0.08%.
