Alcohol Or Drugs Is A Killer.

Drunk Driving Facts are frightening.

One American is killed every 39 minutes on average in a DUI (or Alcohol-Impaired Driving) Fatality.

There were 13,041 such fatalities in 2007 according to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis.

Many set it lower...(e.g. U.A.E, Brazil, Saudi Arabia at Zero Tolerance; China, Sweden at 0.02%; Japan, India at 0.03%; Lithuania at 0.04%.

While a number set it higher at 0.08% (e.g. U.S.A., United Kingdom, Mexico).
