Drunk driving is a serious issue throughout the country. It causes thousands of fatalities and even more injuries every year. It is vital that states and cities work on ways to regulate and prevent people driving while under the influence of alcohol.
Drinking and driving affect countless people across the United States, both people who drive impaired, and people who are involved in accidents related to alcohol. Police officers pull over millions of people every year for driving while under the influence of alcohol.
Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States. In Arizona specifically, distracted driving causes 11% of all crashes. Unlike DUI laws, Arizona is one of few states that does not have extensive regulations for distracted driving, along with Montana and South Carolina.
As the number of DUIs increase across the nation, states are beginning to create stricter regulations for drinking and driving. However, some states have more intense laws than others. Recent studies have found that Arizona has the strictest DUI penalties and regulations in the country.
