DUI Accident Statistics

In this case, the defendant was clearly at fault because he was driving while under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is one of the most reckless and dangerous things a driver can do. Intoxicated drivers endanger the lives of innocent people as well as their own lives, which is unacceptable.

While California and the United States as a whole have made significant strides in the fight against drunk driving, there is still a long way to go to achieve complete elimination. In the U.S., drunk driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents and fatalities. In 2018 alone, there were 10,511 deaths attributed to drunk driving accidents. Deaths and damages related to drunk driving contribute to a cost of approximately $44 billion per year.
