Lives can change, or end, in a moment. Make your moments count. If you drink, don't drive. We Take it Seriously. We hope you do, too.
Drunk Driving Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
Every day, almost 29 people in the United States die in alcohol-impaired vehicle crashes—that's one person every 50 minutes in 2016. Drunk-driving fatalities have fallen by a third in the last three decades; however, drunk-driving crashes claim more than 10,000 lives per year. In 2010, the most recent year for which cost data is available, these deaths and damages contributed to a cost of $44B per year.
