State Fact Sheets
Find state-specific fact sheets below that provide a snapshot of crash deaths involving alcohol-impaired drivers and alcohol-impaired driving (AID) and an overview of proven strategies to reduce or prevent AID.
Almost one in three traffic deaths in the United States involves a driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 g/dL or higher. Alcohol-impaired driving laws make it illegal to drive with a BAC at or above a specified level (0.05 g/dL or 0.08 g/dL, depending on the state). Still, alcohol-impaired drivers got behind the wheel about 147 million times in 2018. Learn more about effective interventions for reducing and preventing AID.
