It doesn't matter where you live, who you are or how much time you spend behind the wheel, there is always the chance that you could be involved in a car accident. While some accidents are unavoidable, this is not always true. For example, driving under the influence leads to many accidents, some fatal, every year.
According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the number of drunk driving deaths in the United States has been chopped in half since 1980. Despite all the progress that has been made, nothing changes the fact that this is still a major problem in the United States.
Here is another eye-opening statistic from Mothers Against Drunk Driving: On average, 66 percent of people will be involved in at least one drunk driving accident in their life.
This one statistic goes a long way in proving that driving under the influence is not only common, but also extremely dangerous. While some of these accidents are minor, others claim the life of at least one person. Furthermore, there is always the chance of property damage.
Every year, many lives are impacted by a drunk driving accident. This is why law enforcement continues to crack down on those who have too much to drink before getting behind the wheel.
