Around ½ of traffic-related deaths occur in the United States involve a drunk driver. According to the CDC between 2003 to 2012 over 10,000 of those deaths happened in California. The state of California has continued to increase DUI penalties because of the high statistic rates.

In the report, it is stated that Californians in their 20s and 30s are the most at risk for drunk driving-related fatalities. Motor accidents are the number one cause of death in Americans below age 30.

To help prevent drunk driving states including California are working on awareness of DUI-related accidents and deaths. Other methods that states are working on reducing drunk driving include: drunk driving laws with stricter penalties, ignition interlock devices also called (IID) which is a breathalyzer that must have a test past to use a vehicle.
