Drunk driving injuries occur at a frighteningly frequent rate. Mother Against Drunk Driving (MADD) statistics show that on a yearly basis more than 17,000 people are fatally injured in alcohol-related collisions. Not only do drunk drivers put themselves at risk every time they get behind the wheel, but they also negligently put others at risk of being seriously injured.
Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicate that more than 45,000 crashes due to alcohol-related factors occur every year. The NHTSA also indicates that the most dangerous drivers on major highways are teenagers aged 15-20. Teenagers have a higher crash rate than any other group. Twenty-eight percent of teenagers killed in auto collisions had alcohol in their blood alcohol concentration tests.
