The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released the results of a nationwide survey on alcohol-impaired driving. Despite the known risks of driving drunk, about 4 million adults admitted to driving while intoxicated in 2010. These 4 million drivers were responsible for the deaths of almost 11,000 Americans.


Who are these impaired drivers?


  • 80% of impaired drivers are male.

  • 32% are males between the ages of 21 and 34.

  • 85% of drunk drivers are binge drinkers, meaning they consume 5 or more drinks in a short time.

  • 55% binge drink at least 4 times a month.

  • The Midwest had the highest rate of impaired driving episodes at 643 per 1,000 population.
