Connecticut Serious Car Accidents
There are over six million car accidents each year in the country. Driving while intoxicated is a dangerous practice with very serious consequences. Alcohol is a factor in one-third of all fatal accidents that transpire every year. When a driver drinks just two beers, they are 11 times more likely to be the cause of an accident than when they have no alcohol in their system.
The majority of accidents that occur are a result of driver failure and many of these tragedies can be avoided through safer driving practices.
