Small Decrease in Number of Drunk Drivers?

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has announced the organization is “cautiously optimistic” about the news from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)that the number of alcohol-related traffic fatalities decreased by 2.1% from 2003 to 2004.

That percentage change reflects a drop from 17,013 deaths in 2003 to 16,654 in 2004. This is still a shameful number of lives lost to drunk driving. Lowering the legal Blood Alcohol Concentration rate in several states may have contributed to the lower number of fatalities, but increased enforcement of DWI laws and seat belt usage laws would lower the fatality number even more.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
