The COLD, HARD, SOBERING FACTS about alcohol and drunk driving in the United States:
Fact: A total of 16,694 alcohol-related fatalities were recorded in 2004. That’s one death nearly every 1/2 hour in this country at the hands of someone who was drinking and driving.
Fact: Approximately 275,000 persons are injured or disfigured yearly by alcohol-impaired drivers. One third of these are children.

In 2004, out of all traffic fatalities, 32% involved a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher.

We’ve gotten MADD, SADD, and BADD but the craziness continues. Drunk driving kills! It’s time to stop the insanity.
