It is widely known from numerous studies and case examples that impaired driving is the one of the most frequently committed crimes in the United States today. According to www.duipictures.com other alcohol-related statistics show the involvement of alcohol in many non-driving situations:
- 40% of all suicide attempts are alcohol-related
- 54% of all violent crimes are alcohol-related
- 60% of all emergency room admissions are alcohol-related
- 80% of all domestic disputes are alcohol-related
Drivers should be responsible enough to avoid driving when under influence, whether that is from alcohol or drugs. Drunk and drugged drivers are especially scarey when they have kids in the vehicle.
