Local, state, and federal agencies across the country are cracking down on drunk driving, but unfortunately, harsher penalties can never prevent everyone from getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 31 percent of all traffic fatalities are caused by a drunk driver, and nearly 29 people in the United States die in alcohol-related crashes every day.
