D.C. Has High DUI Fatality Rate

The District of Columbia has a higher-than-average DUI fatality rate. In December of 2009 alone, 753 people were killed by drunk drivers or by being impaired themselves.

The holiday season is a difficult time for police across the country that are on heightened awareness for drunk drivers. The district is no different; patrols are increased and DUI checkpoints are set up to crack down on drunk driving-caused fatalities.

Of these fatal accidents, many are caused by drivers that have a blood-alcohol level of 0.15 or greater. While the state limit is .08, a BAC of 0.15 or greater is extremely intoxicated. In addition to high BACs, drivers that have multiple DUI arrests and/or convictions also contribute to driving fatalities. Courts are working to prevent multiple offenders from having access to driving privileges but research shows that these offenders are not often deterred by criminal punishments.
