Drunk Driver Collisions

According to the United States Department of Transportation, everyday, about 28 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes - that's one person every 52 minutes. 

Drunk and drugged driving incidents are crashes not accidents. These collisions are the result of a bad choice, not chance.

Head injuries, spine injuries, and other serious bodily and mental injuries can all result from a drunk driver collision.

Texas became the 25th state to pass an all-offender ignition interlock law in 2015. In 2017 and 2019, Texas lawmakers got tough on first-time drunk drivers by ensuring that an ignition interlock is used as part of any plea deal.
