Facts on impaired driving accidents

In Florida, 2.1 percent of adults self-reported that they have driven after drinking too much in the past 30 days, which is higher than the national average of 1.9 percent. Across the U.S., almost 30 people die in auto accidents involving an intoxicated driver each day, and that amounts to a death every 51 minutes. An estimated 10,322 people in the U.S. were killed in drunk driving accidents, and these incidents account for almost a third of all car accidents.
