ADOT does an annual evaluation of drunk driving accidents and details their findings. The statistics are scary. By way of example, the number of drunk driving accidents accounts for less than 5% of all traffic accidents in Arizona. However, nearly 33% of all traffic fatalities in Arizona result from drunk driving accidents.
Thousands of innocent people are injured in drunk driving accidents. The economic toll of drunk driving accidents is equally staggering. Annually, nearly $500M in damages flow from drunk driving accidents. There is a great deal of additional detail in the report with respect to when drunk driving accidents are most likely to occur: time of day, day of week, time of year, etc.
