Every day, someone is seriously injured or killed because of a drunk driver. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, someone is killed in a drunk driving accident every 45 minutes. Getting behind the wheel of a car after one has been drinking alcohol is a very reckless act. The family members of a victim who was injured or killed in an accident are often left feeling helpless and sorrowful.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states quite clearly that thirty people are killed every day in the United States due to incidents relating to drunk drivers. Nearly a whole third (roughly thirty two percent) of every single death in a traffic related incident in the United States during 2009 was the result of some kind of alcohol impairment. MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving have revealed that during the most recent year there have been a massive seven hundred and seventy deaths in Florida alone from alcohol related traffic incidents.
A rather hair raising factoid, also from Mothers Against Drunk Driving is that, generally speaking, a impaired driver has driven in his or her current state at least eighty seven times before they are ever arrested. Now that is a chilling fact.
We highly recommended everyone to visit the MADD base site to learn about their goals and to educate one’s self on the inherent dangers of drunk driving and what you can do to mitigate it’s hold over the populace. Those unfortunate enough to have suffered at the hands of a DUI offender include people from every walk of life, every creed, race and skin color, both old and young. On our blog, one of our most current posts was about a off the clock cop who was charged with the prospect of DUI manslaughter as well as vehicular homicide. He killed a twenty three year old woman in Miami while cruising about far above the legal limit.
