Here are a few drunk driving facts:
- In 2010 alone, 10,228 people were killed in alcohol-related accidents, accounting for 31% of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. (NHTSA)
- In 2010, more than 1.4 million drivers were for arrested for DUI. (Reported by the CDC)

While drinking and driving has gained widespread media attention and spurred anti-drinking and driving campaigns across the globe, people still drink and get behind the wheel every day. Since most people don't understand the factors that influence alcohol absorption such as food, the strength of the drink, rate of absorption, gender, and medications, too many people go overboard and risk the safety of others by electing to drive while under the influence of alcohol, in effect putting others' lives on the line.
