DUI Accident Statistics

Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is one of the most irresponsible things drivers can do. They won’t only endanger their own lives, but they will also potentially harm other innocent motorists on the roadway.

Sadly, intoxicated driving remains a serious public safety problem in California. According to data published by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), there were more than 1,000 DUI accident deaths in California in 2017 alone.

Many thousands more innocent people were forced to endure severe, even life-altering injuries and trauma because of drunk driving. Approximately 30 people in the U.S. die every day due to drunk driving accidents. Drunk driving accounts for about 29 percent of all motor vehicle accident fatalities in the U.S.

Often drunk drivers commit several different negligent acts at the same time. They are more likely to speed, they repeatedly violate other traffic laws, and they have trouble holding their attention on the road and avoiding distractions.
