The statistics are enough to shock most: Every 53 minutes, someone is killed in a drunk driving accident. Every 90 seconds, someone is injured in a drunk driving accident. In total, close to 10,000 people are killed every year due to drunk driving.
These numbers all come from the national organization Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, or MADD, as the group is commonly called. Their main mission is to provide support to the victims of drunk driving, while also increasing the public awareness on just how serious an issue this really is.
