INCIDENTS A DAY

Adults drank too much and drove about 121 million times per year-over 300,00 incidents of drinking and driving a day.

When Anne Tuck was pregnant with her daughter, she would go to a nearby brook of water, rub her belly, and sing to her unborn child. “She would always calm down there,” Anne says.
