We all know that drunk driving impairs your ability to drive. Despite this, drunk driving is more common than most people realize. Unfortunately, this is why 2 out of every 3 people will be involved in a drunk driving crash during their lifetime, and someone is injured by a drunk driver every two minutes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
- Approximately one-third of all traffic crash deaths in the United States involve drunk drivers.
- In 2018, there were 10,511 people killed in traffic crashes involving drunk drivers.
- In 2018, an average of 1 alcohol crash related death occurred every 50 minutes.
- From 2009-2018, more than 10,000 people died every year in drunk-driving crashes.
Of course, these statistics only refer to deaths, and don’t include the number of injuries caused by drunk driving crashes.
