Here are some facts to consider:
- Male motorists who die in automobile crashes are twice as likely as female drivers to be legally drunk (BAC of 0.10 g/dL or greater)
- The highest intoxication rates among drivers in fatal crashes in 1997 were for those 21 to 24 years old (26.3%), followed by 25 to 34 years old (23.8%) and 35 to 44 years old (22.1%).1
- Drivers aged 21-34 years having been arrested for driving while intoxicated are over four times as likely to ultimately die in a crash involving alcohol than those who have not been arrested for driving while intoxicated. Adult drivers aged 35 years or older are 11 times more likely to have the same fate.
- Alcohol-related accidents cost the U.S. $45 billion in direct cost, loss of earnings and household productivity.
Drinking and driving rates have remained unacceptably high among U.S. adults, states research supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Incidents of driving a car after drinking “enough to be in trouble if stopped by the police" were reportedly high, especially for men. Results showed that all drinkers seem to misjudge how much alcohol they can drink before their driving ability becomes impaired.
