According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), impaired drivers cause more than $37 billion in damages on a yearly basis. The NHTSA reports that, in 2010, alcohol was a factor in more than 10,000 auto accident deaths, and upwards of 15 percent of drivers who fatally injure others in auto accidents test positive for drugs including cocaine, meth, and marijuana.
In New Jersey, between 2005 and 2009, 57 percent of fatal auto accidents were caused by intoxicated drivers, and one in five of those drivers had more than one drug in their system at the time of the accident.
