60% of Alcohol-Related Fatalities Caused by Repeat Drunk Drivers

By Breyer Law Offices on July 1, 2009

It’s a fact: Repeat drunk drivers are responsible for 60% of alcohol-related fatalities. I learned this little tidbit, along with a lot of other information, from Chris Davis, an outstanding Seattle personal injury trial lawyer.

As an attorney for victims of Arizona drunk driver accidents, I continue to be overwhelmed by this number. Drunk driving accidents are preventable and yet, they are an everyday occurrence. It is time that we, in Arizona and in the United States, start taking drunk driving more seriously. We need to consider a zero-tolerance policy.

One DUI = No More License.

Why such an extreme reaction? Because we have an extreme problem. Clearly, one night in jail and revoking a license for one year isn’t working. If we can save a single victim of a drunk driving accident from having to suffer through years of pain by enacting such a law, then it is time to get it done.

To those in Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, Flagstaff, and throughout Arizona who have suffered personal injuries caused by a drunk driver, Breyer Law Offices is always here to your answer questions. Not every victim of a drunk driver should file a lawsuit, but it is almost always best to at least talk to a skilled Phoenix car accident attorney with actual experience in fighting for victims of drunk drivers.
