Drunk driving accounts for a staggering number of traffic-related deaths in the United States. 10,265 people died in alcohol-impaired car wrecks in 2015, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation; that’s nearly one-third of all traffic-related deaths. The CDC found that nearly 121 million people acknowledged driving while under the influence of alcohol. Drunk driving is clearly a widespread problem that impacts so many: statistics suggest that 30% of Americans will be involved in an accident with a drunk driver in their lifetime.
