DUI Accident Statistics

The liability is clear in this case as the suspect was driving while under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident. Driving while drugged or intoxicated is probably one of the most reckless and dangerous things a driver can do. Everyone deserves to be able to travel safely.

Intoxicated drivers put the lives of others — and themselves — in grave danger. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 30 people die in drunk driving accidents in the United States every day.

While California and the United States as a whole have made significant progress in reducing drunk driving, there is still much more work to be done. Drunk driving is responsible for about 29% of all fatal car accidents in the United States. Sixty-one percent of these motorists have a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or higher.
