“Most people are aware of the risks associated with drinking and driving. However, there is a young, hard-to-reach group who still choose to ignore them.
Each year, 150 young adult drivers crash because they’re driving under the influence of alcohol (an average of three crashes a week.) This group perceive any potential risk as being too low or too remote a possibility to worry about: ‘It won’t happen to me.’ Experience tells them they can get away with it.”
