Save Lives, Don’t Drink and Drive

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that about 30 people per day die in the United States from an alcohol-related crash. On a national scale, drunk driving accidents cost almost $60 billion per year. Despite groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) raising awareness for this deadly yet preventable cause of death, drunk driving remains a serious problem throughout the country.

Here are a few helpful bits of knowledge to avoid causing an easily-preventable accident, and possibly harming yourself or others:

  • Only time sobers you up. Things like taking a cold shower, exercise, or a strong cup of coffee do not make you sober faster.
  • Younger people, people who don’t weigh much, and people with empty stomachs tend to get more intoxicated quicker.
  • No matter how expensive a cab may seem, it is cheap compared to a DUI fine. A first-time DUI offense that does not result in injury costs on average $10,000 when calculating fines, legal fees, lost work opportunities, and increased transportation costs due to not having a license any longer.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto wreck, pedestrian accident, or other accident caused by a drunk driver, call Warren and Barren County, Kentucky personal injury attorney Flora Templeton Stuart at 888-782-9090 for a free case evaluation. Flora and her staff have decades of experience in representing DUI victims and has seen the devastation that these accidents can cause families.
