THE THREAT

Drunk Driving is still the #1 cause of death on our roadways.

INCIDENTS A DAY

Adults drink too much and drive about 121 million times per year – or more than 300,000 incidents of drinking and driving a day.

DEATHS A YEAR

That’s 29 deaths every day and one death every 50 minutes. Each and every one of them 100% preventable.

INJURIES PER YEAR

290,000 injuries per year means exponentially more friends, family members and loved ones unnecessarily impacted by this preventable crime.

THE HUMAN TOLL

Drunk and drugged driving comes with a cost - and it is one that robs us of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, spouses and friends. Meet the people behind the statistics.

Twin siblings have an inexplicable bond that is special in many ways. From sharing birth to life milestones their unique relationship forms as they grow up.
