The Problem: The operation of motor vehicles while intoxicated is a major public health problem. Each year in the United States roughly 13,400 people die and an additional 255,500 are injured in motor vehicle crashes involving an alcohol-impaired driver. These crashes account for 32 percent of all U.S. traffic-related deaths and cost roughly $51 billion a year. CDC: Impaired Driving Factsheet.
