December 20: Lights on for Life. Turn your headlights on this day as the symbolic observance designed to focus attention on the impaired driving issue and to remember those who have lost their lives due to DUI. It is the kickoff for National Holiday Lifesavers Weekend, the weekend prior to Christmas, where law enforcement agencies combine forces in a massive effort to identify and apprehend those driving under the influence, and other traffic violators.
