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.
