DUI Accident Statistics

Everyone deserves safe roads. Unfortunately, some irresponsible drivers who drive while under the influence of either drugs or alcohol can seriously endanger other motorists’ lives on the road.

Intoxicated drivers put innocent people — and themselves — at severe and unacceptable risk. While California and the United States as a whole have made some remarkable progress on curbing drinking and driving, there is still a very long way to go.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 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. Around sixty-one percent of these drivers have a Blood Alcohol Content of .08 percent or higher.

When DUI accidents occur, the resulting crashes are far more likely to lead to significant injuries. This is because impaired drivers are more likely to engage in reckless or dangerous behavior. Many DUI accidents occur at high rates of speed.
