Intoxicated drivers are among the most hazardous of all. Because of the carelessness of a drunk driver, a child can lose a parent, a parent can lose a child, a spouse can lose his or her better half – all in an instant.
Every year in the United States, more than 10,000 people are killed in car accidents that involve a drunk driver. Even more are seriously injured. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that in 2012, 33,561 people died as a result of an alcohol-involved accident. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), someone dies every 53 minutes due to a drunk driving accident, and someone is hurt every 2 minutes.
These statistics are so staggering and frustrating, especially because the accidents that cause these serious injuries and untimely deaths are completely preventable.

What is considered “drunk driving” in New Mexico?
New Mexico has laws regarding driving while intoxicated or under the influence (DWI/DUI). In all cities, including Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration level is .08. However, BAC only needs to be .02% for a person under the age of 21, or .04% for a commercial vehicle driver. Unfortunately, the law does not stop everyone from drinking and driving.
