Meet Our Fall 2019 Winner

One huge problem on the roads are drivers under the influence. Drunk driving accidents make up an alarming percentage of car accidents in the United States. In 2016, 28% of all traffic-related deaths in the U.S. were the result of alcohol-impaired driving crashes, and that is solely fatalities, not including the number of crashes where people survive but are injured (CDC 2020). Moreover, there are a staggering 111 million self-reported alcohol-impaired driving episodes every year, which means that millions of drivers get on the road under the influence, putting themselves and others drivers at risk (CDC 2020). According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost 30 people die each day in drunk driving crashes in the U.S. — totaling more than 10,500 lives lost (2018) and costing more than $44 billion in death and damages (2010) (NHTSA 2020).
