Yes, I know a lot of people drink/drive and admitted to such a couple of times in the past.
The point is change our attitude of this as acceptable behavior...if we lost nearly 10,000 Americans annually for any other reason it absolutely would not be tolerated. (I was wrong on quoting 20,000 earlier)
Over 1.41 million drivers were arrested in 2010 for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
In 2011, 9,878 people died in drunken-driving crashes — one every 53 minutes.
Adults drank too much and got behind the wheel about 112 million times in 2010 — that is almost 300,000 incidents of drinking and driving each day.
If all 17 million people who admitted to driving drunk in 2010 had their own state, it would be the fifth largest in the U.S.
Every day in America, another 27 people die as a result of drunken-driving crashes.
Almost every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunken-driving crash.
