Alcohol, Drugs & Driving

Placeholder Alaska Other

Impaired drivers continue to kill someone every 30 minutes, nearly 50 people a day, and almost 18,000 citizens a year. In the past decade, four times as many Americans died in drunk driving crashes as were killed in the Vietnam War. About 97% of Americans see drinking and driving as a threat to themselves and their families. Highway fatalities are one of the reasons Alaska has created tough laws against driving under the influence. Before you choose to drive after drinking, we want you to understand the possible consequences.

For the cost of a first time DUI you could go 11,370 miles in a taxi. That’s almost half way around the world.
