Did You Know?

On average, 1 in 3 people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.

In 2009, 10,839 people died in drunk-driving crashes — 1 every 50 minutes — and more than 350,000 were injured in drunk driving crashes.

Every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash.

An average drunk driver has driven drunk 87 times before a first arrest.

50 to 75 % of convicted drunk drivers continue to drive on a suspended license.

Drunk Driving costs each adult in this country almost $500 per year.

If all 17 million people who admitted to driving drunk in the past year had their own state, it would be the fifth largest in the U.S.*
