Driving While Intoxicated is Deadly

It is estimated that a third of all motor vehicle crash fatalities in the country involve a drunk driver. Drunk driving claimed the lives of 10,874 individuals in 2017, which is aligned with the estimated average of 10,000 deaths per year between the years 2006 and 2016. Moreover, studies reveal that men are far more likely than women to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle after drinking.

To prevent drunk driving accidents, there are several steps one can take:

  • Before going out, figure out if you plan on drinking and, if you do, plan a safe ride to and from your location, whether it be a designated driver or a ridesharing service.
  • If you planned not to drink and end up having a few anyway, do not drive home. Get a ride with a sober friend, call a taxi, or a ridesharing service. With all the options available to get you home safely, there is no reason to drink and drive.
  • If you know someone has been drinking, do not let them attempt to drive home. Help them find a sober ride home and take their keys away.
  • If you notice a driver on the road who appears to be impaired, reach out to local law enforcement. Doing so can potentially save a person’s life.
