Talk to the Best Car Accident Lawyers in Wichita if You Were Injured Because the Other Driver was Drunk
Everyone knows that they shouldn’t drink and drive, but it still happens multiple times every day. MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) has had a great deal of influence regarding how people feel about drinking and driving, but there is a long way to go. Suspending the license of a convicted drunk driver doesn’t seem to accomplish very much. Up to three-quarters of those convicted drivers continue to drive without a valid license. It’s probably a reasonable assumption that not all of them have stopped drinking and driving. Another startling fact is that apparently those who make a habit of driving while intoxicated are very good at evading notice by the police. On average, a drunk driver is not arrested for the first time until he/she has driven drunk at least 80 times.
While you’ve been reading this, 2 or 3 people were injured by a drunk driver. Every hour of every day, someone who was just driving home from work or taking the kids to the mall is killed when their car is hit by someone who drank too much at the local bar or partied too hard with friends. Becoming old enough to legally drink leads to drunkenness combined with inexperience and feelings of invulnerability. Almost 25% of drunk drivers are under the age of 25.
Financially, no one escapes from the costs associated with all of these accidents. It’s estimated that all of costs associated with these drunk driving accidents amount to $500 for each adult in the U.S. For the country as a whole, drunk driving costs the economy about $132 billion a year.
