There is no way to sugarcoat it: drunk driving kills. This year alone, drunk driving will claim the lives of nearly 11,000 individuals. Of these fatalities, over 200 of them will be innocent children under the age of 14. Not only will thousands of people be killed this year because of drinking and driving, many more will also be injured. 800 people today will be hurt in a drunk driving related car crash, leading to 345,000 injuries this year due to people driving under the influence of alcohol.
Police are doing what they can to stop these numbers from climbing, and they will pull over around 100,000 individuals this year who are under the influence of alcohol. That, sadly, is just a mere fraction of the many millions more who won’t get caught. Appallingly, over one hundred million people readily admit that they drink and drive.
Here is the stone-sober truth:
- Every single day, 30 people will die from an alcohol-related car crash.
- One in three people will be a victim in an alcohol-related car crash in their lives.
- Every 48 minutes, another life will be stolen due to drunk driving.
- Most fatal crashes that happen over the weekend are due to alcohol.
- Young adults (between the ages of 21-24) are most likely to drink and drive.
Did you know that a drunk driver has, on average, driven drunk 80 times before he gets arrested? That’s unacceptable. As a driver, we all take on a certain amount of responsibility when we get behind the wheel. Everything we do is to help ensure the roads are safe for not only ourselves and our passengers, but all the other motor vehicles on the road. The fact that someone would so flagrantly take these risks and endanger other drivers is an outrage.
A car crash can change lives in an instant. In one second, you’re just minding your own business, trying to get to the store or home. In the next, you could be permanently disabled or even killed. The injuries that can be sustained during a drunk driving accident can be devastating. These can include:
- Whiplash (neck, chest, and head injuries)
- Spinal cord injuries (leading to nerve damage and paralysis)
- Traumatic brain injuries (from concussion to brain damage)
- Loss of limb
- Herniated disk (causing pain, numbness, and loss of muscle use)
- PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Life after a car crash can be confusing, scary, and tense. There’s a good chance you’ll be spending a lot of time at your doctor’s office, doing your best to try and recover as well as you can from your injuries. Meanwhile, you may find yourself unable to work after your accident. If you’re the sole breadwinner in the household, this can make your anxiety and worries even worse. Bills won’t pay themselves, and without income, things can quickly be very stressful.
