The Dangers of Drunk Driving

Did you know that roughly 32 people die each day in drunk driving accidents? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 958 people died in Florida from alcohol-related crashes in 2020 alone. 

What is Drunk Driving?

Impaired driving or driving under the influence (DUI) is drinking alcohol and then operating a motor vehicle with at least a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of at least 0.08%.

The consequences of impaired driving are staggering. Driving drunk can cause accidents that lead to paralysis, disfigurement, brain damage, and even death. It can also lead to penalties such as driver’s license revocation, fines, and even jail time.
