Drunk Driving & Underage Drinking Statistics
For more than two decades the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility has been leading the fight to eliminate drunk driving and underage drinking. During this time drunk driving fatalities have declined 35% and among those under 21 the number of fatalities has decreased 65%. Underage drinking among the nation’s youth has continued to decline with fewer reporting drinking each year – past month consumption decreasing 50% since 1991 – while the number of conversations among parents and kids has increased.
Responsibility.org has transformed countless lives through programs that have contributed to these historic lows in drunk driving and underage drinking. National and state level statistics assist Responsibility.org in our efforts to eliminate drunk driving and underage drinking. As part of our commitment to guiding a lifetime of conversations around alcohol responsibility, including responsible decision-making regarding beverage alcohol and reducing the prevalence of underage drinking, we track drunk driving and underage drinking trends as well as other national relevant trends and statistics.
