Driving a car is a fun part of the Floridian lifestyle. The beautiful, warm climate coupled with the exciting, invigorating night life can be a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately, car accidents are all too common in Florida
and many of them involve drunk driving. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), even “buzzed” driving is considered drunk driving.
Drunk Driving Accidents in Florida: Statistics and Facts
According to a report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2012, 2.1% of adults reported driving after drinking too much in the past 30 days. Between 2003 and 2012, there were 8,476 young adults between the ages of 21 and 34 killed in crashes involving a drunk driver in the State of Florida.
Furthermore, according to a survey conducted by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) in March 2022, a driver has driven drunk 87 times before their first arrest. In addition to educating teenagers and young adults about the risks involved with underage drinking and drunk driving, it's also important to educate them about the risks involved with getting into a vehicle with a friend or loved one who has been drinking.
