Project Roadblock: Let’s keep our roads safe this holiday season
According to the latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety administration, more than 10,100 died in drunk driving accidents on U.S. roadways in 2019. While that's the lowest total since records started being kept in 1982, consider this: every day, about 28 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes — that's one person every 52 minutes.
