If the penalties for drinking and driving are not enough to make you or someone you know stop before starting the car, maybe some statistics would help. You can find drinking and driving statistics from many federal, state, and local government offices, as well as independent groups such as MADD. You can also use the internet to easily learn where to access this information. The results will be staggering.
Drinking and driving leads to more deaths and other accidents than most people are truly aware of. If you are trying to convince someone (or even yourself) that drinking and driving is truly a risk, use the public resources to get all the information you need.
