Update On Efficacy of Drunk Driving Laws October 29, 2008

Posted by Attorney Jonathan Groth in Drunk Driving.

Mike and Sean commented on my earlier drunk driving post.  They asked whether stiff drunk driving laws reduce accidents and injuries.  Good question.  I did my usual google search and found a study that dates way back to 1987.   It was a Purdue University study that found that drunk driving accidents decreased by 20% after stiffer laws were enacted.  But, the number of hit and run accidents increased by 8%. 

I’ll keep looking for a recent statistic.  If you find one please comment!

Thanks for the comments!
