Impaired driving is one of the most serious traffic risks facing the nation, killing thousands every year. According to NHTSA, significant reductions in the number of alcohol-related traffic deaths occurred in the 1980s and early 1990s, but progress has since been slow. More than 16,000 people were killed nationwide in alcohol-related crashes in 2005. In 2012 in Maine, 7,014 people were arrested for operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
