Legislation is very clear about driving while intoxicated. Drunk driving
is a crime and law enforcement bodies go to great lengths to deter individuals
from driving while legally intoxicated. Driving while drunk impedes the
driver's ability to negotiate the many tasks that can arise on the
road. Unfortunately many choose to carelessly get behind the wheel.
A large percentage of traffic deaths that occur every year are alcohol related, approximately 39%. Over half a million people are injured every year as a result of drunk driving accidents. These include car accidents, pedestrian accidents and truck accidents. Tragically many of these accidents were preventable.
