Drunk Driving Safety Facts and Tips 

Every 30 minutes someone dies in an alcohol-related crash. Alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes killed over 17,000 people in 2005 alone (latest figures available). Alcohol is a factor in 6% of all traffic crashes, and over 40% of all fatal crashes.

  • If you are drinking, do not drive. If you plan to drink, designate a non-drinking driver.

  • Support the strengthening and vigorous enforcement of impaired-driving laws. These laws save lives.

  • Young drivers are at particular risk to be involved in alcohol-related crashes. If there is a young driver in your family, strictly enforce a zero tolerance policy with alcohol. All states have a 21-year-old drinking age law.
     
  • Your best defense against a drunk driver is wearing your safety belt.
