The commercial website BestOnlineTrafficSchool.com has an interesting infographic regarding drunk driving statistics. Here are the opening paragraphs from the page:
In the U.S., we have made significant strides in reducing the incidents of drunk driving over the last 30 years. Groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have led the charge in trying to help educate and curb dangerous driving habits, leading to a 50% reduction in deaths since 1980.
Even so, the problem is far from being solved.
In 2017 alone, nearly 11,000 people died in drunk-driving car accidents including more than 200 children under age 14. To help stop drunk driving, we must continue to draw attention to its deadly effects and uplift organizations working within our communities to stop it once and for all.
In our new infographic, we highlight some of the starkest facts about drunk driving over the last few years. Using the latest research, we calculated the immense impact and the epidemic of deaths caused by reckless behavior behind the wheel.
