|According to research
by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every 45
minutes or 32 times a day, someone in the United States dies in an
alcohol impaired driving crash. The holiday season between
Thanksgiving and New Year’s can be one of the deadliest times on
America’s roadways due to an increase in drunk driving.
In fact, New Year's Day, 2009, 468 people were killed in
crashes on America's roadways. Of those fatalities, 40 percent were
killed in crashed that involved a driver or motorcycle rider with a
blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or greater.
Remember Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving. The consequences of
drinking and driving can be costly no matter how many drinks
you’ve had. Violators often face jail time, higher insurance
rates, and dozens of other unanticipated expenses—including
attorney’s fees, court costs, car towing, repairs and lost work
