According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every day, almost 30 people die in the United States in an alcohol-related crash, more than one fatality per hour. In fact, in 2018, about 29 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities involved alcohol. These statistics reflect the sobering reality that despite decades of public awareness campaigns and crackdowns, drunk driving remains a significant threat to Nevadans.
Still, statistics alone cannot convey the true and devastating impact of drunk driving in our state. Victims of drunk drivers—which includes anyone injured in a crash and the families of those who die—endure agonizing physical, emotional, and financial pain. Injuries take months, even years, to heal, some leaving victims with permanent disabilities.
Many crash victims never fully recover from the emotional trauma inflicted by a drunk driver. The costs of addressing these challenges can run into the hundreds of thousands, even millions, of dollars per victim. In fact, the Federal Bureau of Transportation Statistics estimates the total annual cost to Americans of drunk-driving related accidents at $37 billion.
Drunk driving is illegal, and many drunk drivers face stiff criminal penalties for their actions. However, criminal punishment for drunk drivers often provides suffering victims and grieving families small comfort. They still must face the challenges of physical and mental health recovery, and the mountain of expenses involved in getting their lives back on track.
