Drunk Driving Statistics

How Dangerous is Drunk Driving?

Still think it’s okay to get behind the wheel after a few drinks? It’s not. Here are some reasons why:

  • 10,265 people were killed by drunk drivers
  • This is roughly one-third of all traffic-related deaths in the U.S.
  • 209 children (aged 0-14) were killed by drunk drivers
  • 1.1 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • That’s just 1-percent of the 111 million self-reporded instances of drunk or drugged driving
  • Marijuana users are 25% more likely to cause a car crash than those who have no evidence of marijuana or alcohol use
  • Since 1982, drunk driving fatalities have decreased 51%, but the ratio of drunk driving fatalities to other road fatalities has slightly increased

The Barnes Firm 1-(800) 800-0000

I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.

My attorney and his Assistant helped me through my injury case. It was a real pleasure having their legal advice available to me in a time when I couldn’t think straight or even figure out what to do after my accident injury.
