Drunk Driving Accidents  

Drunk driving accidents occur when drivers decide to operate their motor vehicles under the influence of alcohol. Usually the alcohol consumption by these drivers is so high that it impairs their mental and motor skills. Drunk driving is illegal in all the states of the United States.

As per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, out of all the traffic deaths that take place each year, around 40 percent of the deaths are due to alcohol consumption. This is a very high percentage and administrations are doing everything to educate people on the dangers of drunk driving. However, people are still adamant on driving vehicles while intoxicated.

When a person drinks, the possibility of an accident increases. The more the person drinks, the greater the possibility of the accident being a fatal one. According to experts, if a person has a blood alcohol concentration level of 0.10, the person is seven times more likely to be involved in a fatal vehicle accident compared to a person who has not had any alcohol.

Drunk driving accidents can be avoided if people become more responsible and start worrying about themselves and others. Most drunk drivers show no respect for their own lives or others and are single minded about it. However, it makes sense to have one friend who stays sober and is the designate driver for the evening. This person should not consume any alcohol as he would have the responsibility of driving everyone home after a night of party and fun. The role can be given to another friend the following week. This way drunk driving accidents can be cut down and so also the number of fatalities.
