There are many potential dangers on the roadways that could put Iowa drivers at risk. When an intoxicated driver gets behind the wheel of the car, other drivers and passengers are put in danger. A drunk driving accident could result in serious injuries and even death, and victims and their loved ones could suffer greatly due to their injuries, losses and damages.
A recent report by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that roughly 30 people are killed in a drunk driving accident in the United States every day. This does not only mean that a person dies at the hand of an impaired driver every 48 minutes but also racks up an annual cost of more than $51 billion dollars. Furthermore, the report found that in 2010 nearly one-third of all traffic related deaths were caused by drunk drivers.
