Are you familiar with these drunk driver statistics?

Our New Jersey readers, as well as those in other states, are aware of the fact that drunk driving remains an issue throughout the country. Even if you are sober every time you get behind the wheel, there is no way to guarantee that others on the road are in the same frame of mind.

There are times when a person only has a drink or two and then drives. This often means their blood alcohol content is less than the legal limit. There are other times, however, when a person has had too much to drink. When this happens, the chance of a motor vehicle accident is much greater.

According to the State University of New York, drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of greater than .15 have a better chance of being involved in a fatal crash. Here is a telling statistic from this source: "The average BAC among fatally injured drinking drivers is .16."

With the legal limit set at .08, this goes a long way in showing that many people are getting behind the wheel when they have had entirely too much alcohol to drink. Driving under these conditions greatly increases the chance of an accident.

While most people understand the dangers of drinking and driving, some are blind to the fact that this greatly increases their chance of killing themselves or another person in an accident.

If a person is injured by a drunk driver, he or she may want to speak with an attorney about his or her legal rights and the steps to take towards recovering compensation.
