Drunk driving is the most frequently committed crime in the United States. In 2004, approximately 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. It is estimated that alcohol and other drugs are a factor in 39% of all fatal automobile crashes and one-fifth of all crashes involving injury. Every 31 minutes, someone in America dies from alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes. It's the greatest single cause of death for every age between 3 and 33. It's for that reason the Dickinson Police Department is committed to strong, aggressive, and persistent DUI enforcement to deter drunk driving.
