Drunk driving is a problem year round, and particularly during the holiday season. Recent reports show that over 16,000 people were injured in drunk driving accidents in California in one year. That number is far too high. Drunk driving puts not only the driver’s life at risk, but it also increases the risk of injury or death to other motorists.
And drunk driving isn’t just for automobiles. Recent statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that drunk driving deaths involving motorcycles are on the rise and that motorcyclists involved in fatal crashes are 2.5 times more likely to have consumed alcohol than passenger vehicle drivers.. Indeed, motorcyclists have the highest percentage of alcohol-related deaths — about 46% of riders killed in accidents, according to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), have alcohol in their system at the time of their death.
