California DUI Facts

If you live in the state of California there are some DUI facts that you might be interested in.

In 2009 alone 950 people were killed in alcohol-related car crashes; however, this number is down from 1,025 the year before. An additional 25,914 people were injured in alcohol-related accidents which was also down from 28,463 in 2008.

The Office of Traffic Safety has become heavily involved in reducing these numbers even further by providing $5 million in grants to support sobriety checkpoints. This amount was increased to 2010 to $8 million that provided funding for 2,500 DUI checkpoints.

Of all traffic fatalities in the state, alcohol-related incidents accounted for 31 percent.

The state of California has a 79 percent conviction rate for DUI arrests. A new system was implemented in 2010 in four test counties for convicted first-time drunk drivers. These drivers will have ignition interlock devices installed in their cars for a period of at least five months. The four counties involved in this program are Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Tulare.
