Every day, 28 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 53 minutes. The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $44 billion.
Thankfully, there are effective measures that can help prevent injuries and deaths from alcohol-impaired driving.
Working together, we can help keep people safe on the road – every day. Keep drunk drivers off the road.
Fact sheets are available for each state and the District of Columbia and include national and state data on drunk driving and alcohol-involved crash deaths, as well as an overview of proven strategies for reducing and preventing drunk driving.
