DrugAbuse.com said,

In what should come as no surprise, the number of incidents spike considerably between Friday and Sunday. This three-day span represents more than half of all injuries that occur during the week. The impairing effects of drugs and alcohol make even the most mundane tasks inherently more dangerous.

It's hoped that by raising awareness of these dangerous points, people will be better equipped to avoid accidents.
