How to Deal with Drunk Drivers

A stunning 31% of all the traffic deaths in the United States were involving people who drove while they were intoxicated. That’s no less than 10,000 persons a year or 28 a day! Driving while intoxicated is commonly known as DUI (driving under the influence), but in some states it’s also referred to as DWI (driving while intoxicated), OWI (operating while impaired) and OVI (operating a vehicle under the influence). This is not only very deadly, but also illegal in all 50 states.
