In New York, 28 percent, or 311, of the driving-related fatalities last year were influenced by alcohol, according to the federal report. The was virtually unchanged from the 312 alcohol-related traffic deaths in 2014.

In every State, it’s illegal to drive with a BAC of .08 or higher, yet one person was killed in a drunk-driving crash every 50 minutes in the United States in 2016.

“Another fatal early morning crash has taken the life of an innocent passenger.” said Paul Ajlouny, New York Car Crash Attorney. “No matter how many stories, messages, movements are out there — here we see another person getting behind the wheel and driving drunk. It’s seems to be not as simple as don’t drink and drive; someone is dead.” says Mr. Ajlouny.
