Congrats Ohio, you've improved! According to the stats just beamed out from the Ohio Department of Public Safety, the Christmas holiday claimed less lives in road and alcohol related accidents this year.

Six people were killed, with two deaths attributed to the bottle. Last year saw 11 deaths, five alcohol related, the department’s statistics show.

After a careful analysis of the data, the department's kennel of PhDs concluded a greater number of Ohioans were smart enough cab it or passed out under a friend’s Christmas tree.

Now, if we can get out of New Year’s without a spike, that’s something really to write home to mom about.
