According to the National Traffic Safety Institute, drunk driving car accidents or other auto accidents make up 40% of accident deaths that occur each year in the United States.
Wrongful deaths and car accidents due to drinking and driving or other forms of DUI, are completely preventable. Many states have created tougher laws for habitual offenders of DUI and insurance policies have become more expensive for those who have violated the law.
However, individuals continue to get behind the wheel drunk or under the influence of drugs.
NTSI is doing its part by creating programs designed to rehabilitate and to make offenders aware of the actual consequences of their actions. One program puts offenders face to face with their victims or the family of the victim to help them see the reality of their decisions.
Accidents can ruin the lives of many but making the choice to get behind the wheel while intoxicated is at the height of recklessness.
