Drunk driving is indefensible. There’s really not a lot else that you can say about it. Driving drunk is an activity that should never be undertaken by anyone anywhere under any circumstances. There are no excuses. It’s an activity reserved for the grossly irresponsible, and each and every death and injury that results from drunk driving is hopelessly preventable. Despite this, about 30 percent of all fatalities on roadways are the direct result of impaired driving. In 2012, more than 10,000 people died in drunk driving incidents. That’s an average of one person dead every 51 minutes, and for no good reason.
