Drunk Driving Research Shows Alarming Growth Rate Among Veterans

Driving under the influence is a serious problem across Virginia and other states, but a new report details how this issue is impacting veterans at an alarming rate. According to The Military Times and research conducted by the American Addiction Centers, unhealthy drinking behaviors among veterans increased 60% since 2014. These behaviors included drunk driving and binge drinking. The data examined was taken from the Centers for Disease Control.

NTSB says current drunk driving limits are too low

Drivers in Georgia are considered dangerously intoxicated when they get behind the wheel with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or higher. Despite years-long campaigning by the National Transportation Safety Board to reduce the drunk driving threshold in the United States to .05 percent, these calls have largely fallen on deaf ears. Opponents of stricter drunk driving laws say lowering permissible BAC levels would adversely affect the hospitality and tourism sectors and turn safe drivers into criminals. However, the results of a recent study suggest that the public is unconvinced by these arguments.
