Drunk Driving Accidents & Statistics in Mississippi
According to the CDC, the number of people killed in crashes involving a drunk driver from 2003 to 2012 in Mississippi was nearly double the rate of the national average.
Unfortunately, the likelihood of being involved in a car accident involving an alcohol-impaired-driver may be high: 21% of total traffic fatalities during 2017, in Mississippi, were alcohol-impaired-driving fatalities according to the NHTSA’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis.
Interestingly, exactly 50% of fatal crashes in the United States, involving alcohol, occurred in rural areas, 70% occurred at night, 86% on non-interstate roads and only 8% occurred during rainy/other conditions.
