Understanding the Impact of Drunk Driving in Georgia

In 2011 alone, there were 9,878 people that were killed in an alcohol-impaired automobile accident. These fatalities made up over 31% of all U.S. traffic fatalities that year. That means than a drunk driving accident occurred every 53 minutes somewhere in the United States. Many people think, "what's the harm in driving after a few drinks?"—thinking they can make it home safely. Drunk driving not only puts their life at risk but everyone else who crosses their path. Whether people believe it or not, alcohol affects your reaction time, depth perception, and main motor skills.

According to a national study, there is an average of 12,000 people that die every year in a DUI related accident. By having alcohol in your bloodstream, your chances of crashing grow substantially. Someone with high blood alcohol content is actually 385 times more likely to get into an accident than a sober driver. Drunk driving is against the law in the United States and the state courts have been cracking down on offenders who take this risk.
