Drunk driving is one of the most common crimes to occur in the United States. According to a 2012 study done by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) based on poll data from millions of Americans, drunk driving is extremely common. In the month prior to the study, about 2% of those polled (about 4.2 million people) admitted to drinking and driving at least once.
In 2018, more than 10,000 people died in car crashes in which at least one driver was intoxicated. This means, on average, that one person in the United States is killed every 50 minutes from a drunk driving accident.
