DUI Accident Statistics
Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to road hazards. Because they lack any form of protection, they are the most at risk in the event of a serious accident.
The number of pedestrian deaths in the United States has risen sharply in recent years. A 27% increase in pedestrian deaths occurred between 2007 and 2016, whereas traffic-related deaths fell by 14%.
In this case, a drunk driver was unable to give an innocent pedestrian the right of way. Drunk driving is a serious crime, and anyone caught doing so will be prosecuted. In the United States, drunk driving accidents are not uncommon.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that approximately 30 Americans lose their lives each day as a result of drunk driving accidents. In the United States, drunk driving is responsible for approximately 29% of all motor vehicle accident deaths. Sixty-one percent of these motorists have a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) over the legal limit of.08.
