Drunk driving accidents happen every day in South Carolina and the rest of the United States. Sometimes, simply knowing the facts and figures relating to drunk driving is enough to motivate people to avoid drinking and driving. However, no matter how careful one is when out with friends, it is still quite easy to mistakenly get behind the wheel when you think it is still safe to drive.
Believe it or not, an average of 30 people are killed every single day in the United States after being involved in a drunk driving-related automobile crash. A total of 10,322 DUI-related fatalities happened in 2012, representing about 31 percent of traffic deaths that year.
