Perhaps the single most significant factor in explaining why people drive while impaired is that they believe that there is little risk that they will be caught by police.
Sound crazy? Statistically, they are correct. The Associated Press in 2004, citing a study by the Wisconsin Bureau of Transportation Safety Administration, stated that by some estimates, the average drunk driver will drive while impaired between 80 …and 2000 times for every time he is apprehended, depending on the enforcement capacity of the local police. So it begs the question, how many times did this Texas driver “get away” with drunk driving?
The answer is simple:
Education and Enforcement. That’s we support MADD and will continue supporting them and suing drunk drivers.
