PHIL Image 13866

ID#:13866
Description:This image depicts a symbolic scenario including a bottle of beer and mixed drink in the background, and in the extreme foreground, a set of car keys had been laid to rest on what appeared to be a bar’s granite countertop.

Adults drank too much and got behind the wheel about 112 million times in 2010. Though episodes of driving after drinking too much ("drinking and driving") have gone down by 30% during the past 5 years, it remains a serious problem in the US. Alcohol-impaired drivers* are involved in about 1 in 3 crash deaths, resulting in nearly 11,000 deaths in 2009.

Driving drunk is never OK. Choose not to drink and drive and help others do the same.

These drivers had blood alcohol concentrations of at least 0.08%. This is the illegal blood alcohol concentration level for adult drivers in the United States.

Every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 48 minutes. The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $51 billion.

Thankfully, there are effective measures that can help prevent injuries and deaths from alcohol-impaired driving.
