Gregory T. Neugebauer

Abstract


 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ("NHTSA") recently published some sobering statistics on drinking and driving. [1] A person dies on America’s highways in an alcohol-related fatality every 33 minutes. A person is injured every 2 minutes. Approximately one third of all Americans will experience an alcohol-related crash at least once in their lives. A staggering 1.4 million people "one for every 132 licensed drivers" were arrested for driving under the influence in 1998 alone. As if this human toll is not alarming enough, alcohol-related crashes cost Americans over $100 billion annually.
