Here in America, we place a lot of value on personal responsibility. When you live in society, you have to give up certain things for the benefit of the whole. One example of this practice involves drunk driving. Even though, technically, most people who drink and drive will never hurt someone, we’ve all decided that the risks of doing so outweigh the right. That means that even if you don’t hurt somebody, you become subject to arrest when driving drunk.
Drunk Driving Facts:
If you ever wondered what kind of information fuels drunk driving laws in the first place, we’ve presented some of it here:
- According to NHTSA, just short of 30 people die every day where one of the drivers in either vehicle had alcohol present in their body. That amounts to a death every 51 minutes.
- The NHTSA also reports that about 1/3 of fatal crashes involve one of the drivers having alcohol in their system.
- The age group between 21-24 had the highest rate of driving with a BAC over 0.08 (NHTSA).
