CDC Study: Drunk Driving Decreased, But Still Problem
A new study from the Centers for Disease Control released Tuesday showed men were more likely than women to be drinking and driving and that employing more safety efforts, such as increasing sobriety checkpoints, could save thousands of lives each year.
According to the report, 112 million people drank too much and then drove, which is down 30 percent in the past five years, but still shows a significant problem. In the United States, about one in three crash deaths, or about 11,000 yearly, can be attributed to drinking and driving.
The study also showed that men accounted for four out of every five episodes of drinking and driving that occurred in 2010.
