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.
