Drunk driving fatalities: their most common causes

Drunk driving fatalities are all too common in Minnesota and throughout the rest of America. In fact, they make up one-third of all traffic-related fatalities. As blood alcohol content levels reach and exceed the legal limit of .08 percent, the alcohol begins to impair a driver's perception of distance and speed, reaction times and judgment. Drivers under 24, those convicted of DUI in the past and motorcyclists are at the highest risk for DUI-related deaths.

Though Minnesota State Patrol officers must regularly deal with the aftermath of highway tragedies, the utter destruction and loss of life in this wreck spurred the head of the Minnesota State Patrol to make an impassioned plea for a renewed effort to combat distracted driving.
