DUI Statistics

Drunk driving is the cause of an alarming number of accidents every day. We have gathered the statistics surrounding DUIs to shed light on this issue.

Drivers Ages 21-25 Account for 27% of all Fatal Alcohol-Impaired Crashes.

It’s no surprise that the risk of young drivers getting into a motor vehicle accident is high. Unfortunately, when drinking is involved, it makes the situation worst. Although the ideal percentage for this statistic should be 0%, age requirements on drinking laws have prevented this number from rising.

Every Day, an Estimated 28 People in the United States Die in Drunk-Driving Crashes.

Drinking and driving can happen anywhere and at any time. It’s estimated that one person dies in a drunk-driving crash every 52 minutes. Although most accidents occur in the evening, it’s best to stay alert and be aware of your surroundings at all times if you come across a drunk driver.

While driving, you should eliminate distractions from your vehicle like loud music, ringing cell phones, and texting. If you notice someone driving while under the influence, make sure to alert local authorities immediately.

Over a Quarter of Total Traffic Fatalities Were Alcohol-Related in 2019.
