Stats Show Drunk Driving Remains a Big Problem

Despite the best efforts of police, government agencies, and other organizations, drunk driving remains a big problem in the United States.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving has compiled various statistics related to the issue, including the following:

  • The average drunk driver has driven under the influence 80 times before being arrested for the first time.
  • Every day in the United States 28 people die in a drunk driving related accident.
  • Every two minutes in the United States another person is injured in a drunk driving accident.

On top of the potential for injury and death, drunk driving is expensive, costing the United States nearly $200 billion every year.

Even though fewer people are driving drunk, this problem is anything but cured. The statistics above show that this remains an issue on many levels.
