Humans are vastly imperfect and, as such, many engage in behavior that seems contrary to their best interest. This is evident everyday as thousands of individuals operate dangerous motor vehicles at high speeds while distracted. Since all it takes is a momentary loss of concentration to cause an accident, thousands of people are putting their lives and others at risk every day. As more people try to get the message of safe driving out, cities and states are organizing their own response.
Over the past three years in Modesto, California there have been 218 drunken driving accidents. Those 218 accidents resulted in 358 injuries and 10 deaths, which is a welcomed improvement from levels reached in the 90's, when someone was killed every 15 minutes. Since then,, programs such as "Every 15 Minutes" and sober grad nights have played a role in reducing the amount of injuries and deaths from teen drunk driving.
