Every year, over 10,000 people die in drunk driving accidents in the United States. That’s an average of about 1 person per hour. And hundreds of thousands of others are injured in alcohol-related car accidents. Annually, the monetary cost of DUI car crashes rings up to a staggering $37 billion. Similarly, other controlled substances, such as illegal drugs, are a factor in almost 18% of car driver deaths.
We have come a long way since the first drunk driving laws were established as early as 1907. But clearly, drunk and impaired driving is still a major issue affecting our country today and it requires discussion.
David Daggett is here today to answer questions about drunk & impaired driving and how we can protect ourselves and our children from the dangers presented by drunk drivers on the road.
