This infographic presents some of the dangers (myth and real) that occur during the November-January holiday season. The first half of the infographic does a nice job of accompanying numbers with data visualization, but that filters out in the last half of the infographic. There are also moments where the illustration style changes from the established technique, which could be distracting for the reader. In terms of content, the use of statistics is very effective. However, with some data at least three years old and no sources listed, the credibility is called into question. There's a great start for this infographic, but it could do with a bit more consistency. We'd give this a D.
