The US government issued a report on the hazards of drunk driving. According to the report, half of the 50,000 highway deaths last year involved intoxicated drivers. Annually, drunk drivers cause 80,000 accidents, 750,000 serious injuries, and 5 billion dollars in economic losses. Federal studies show that on weekend nights one out of ten motorists is intoxicated but just one in 2,000 is arrested. The government has proposed to strengthen laws against drunk driving.
