National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month
This December, during National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, consider what you and your community can do to make injuries and deaths from impaired driving less of a threat.
- According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). About three in every ten Americans will be involved in an alcohol-fee related
crash at some point in their lives.
- In an average year, 30 million Americans drove drunk and 10 million drove drugged accounting for nearly one-third (32%) of all traffic-related deaths in
the United States.
- In one year, over 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. This accounts for less than 1% of the 159 million self-reported episodes of alcohol-impaired driving among U.S adults each year.
- Alcohol-related crashes in the United States cost about $51 billion a year.
