Most of us know someone who has gotten a DUI (driving under the influence) or who has driven home drunk even though they shouldn’t have.
Can you guess many people do you think are killed each year because of drunk drivers?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 32,719 people died in traffic crashes in 2013 in the United States (latest figures available), including an estimated 10,076 people who died in drunk driving crashes, accounting for 31% of all traffic deaths that year.
Do you know what percent of all traffic fatalities are alcohol related?
In 2013, 10,076 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. Of the 1,149 traffic deaths among children ages 0 to 14 years in 2013, 200 (17%) involved an alcohol-impaired driver.
