Drunk Driving, (DUI), (DWI) is a criminal offense in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) the chances of being involved in a drunk driving traffic accident is 1 in 3 (33%) over the course of your driving lifetime. On average, over 25 people die every day from an alcohol related traffic accident in the United States. The toll upon society as a whole is staggering. The cost of the damages and deaths of these unnecessary traffic accidents goes well beyond $50 Billion per year in the United States alone. A Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.081 or higher indicates the level at which a drunk driving violation has occurred in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Traffic accidents involving a DUI or DWI have decreased over the past several decades. Awareness, personal responsibility, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), harsh penalties, and the stigma of this crime have all contributed to its decline.
