Drunk Driving Kills 1 Person Every 48 Minutes

Actress Reese Whitherspoon's husband was arrested over the weekend for driving under intoxication. This crime puts people's lives at risk.

Two close friends of mine died in car wrecks while driving intoxicated. It was sad attending their funerals. The parents were shaken up by the tragic unexpected deaths. Whenever I would drive passed the spot where one friend died, I would think about her.

In this infographic by McGregor & Collins, we learn that "30 people die every day from drunk driving and that "31% of all traffic related deaths in the U.S." involve alcohol.

These deaths can be prevented. Since I am not a drinker, I have been a designated driver on multiple occasions.
