1 in 50 self-report drunk driving

Posted on October 19th, 2011 No Comments

In an anonymous survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2010, one in 50 adults admitted to drunk driving at least once in the previous month.

The survey also revealed that 81 percent of drivers who self-reported driving drunk were men. 1 in 3 who self-reported drunk driving in the survey were men between the ages of 21- and 34-years-old.

The CDC also found, based on the survey, that people who live in the Midwest and people who do not always wear their seat belt are more likely to drink and drive. Overall, officials estimate that people in the U.S. drove drunk 112 million times in 2010.
