Drunk Driving Statistics
Justin Sheldon—January 21, 2022
Every day, 27 people in the United States die as a result of crashes involving a drunk driver. This means that one person is killed every 51 minutes in the US. Drunk driving is an ongoing issue, including in the state of Virginia.
Here are the most recent Virginia drunk driving statistics, presented by Responsibility.org. In summary, there were 240 total alcohol-impaired driving fatalities.
Despite Virginia’s tough laws against drunk driving, there are still reckless individuals who continue to put their lives and the lives of others at risk. Those individuals should be held accountable, especially if their negligence has resulted in a personal injury.
