Despite the known risks, drunk driving remains a serious public safety issue. The statistics are disturbing. For example, each and every day in the United States, close to 30 people lost their lives in drunk-driving accidents. That translates to one life lost every 50 minutes. In 2010, the most recent year for which cost data is available, these deaths and damages contributed to a cost of $44 billion that year.
