Between 1991, when The Century Council was founded, and 2010, the rate of drunk driving fatalities per 100,000 population decreased 48% nationally. (Source: NHTSA/FARS and US Census Bureau, 2011).

Mission Statement


DWI is defined as “driving while Intoxicated.”  This means having a BAC of 0.08%.  For a driver under 21, this is defined as having ANY measurable alcohol in the blood, breath, or urine.  DUI is defined as “driving under the influence” of alcohol or drugs.  This can be applied even if your BAC is below 0.08% if it can be proved you are impaired .According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 32,885 people died in traffic crashes in 2010 in the United States (latest figures available), including an estimated 10,228 people who died in drunk driving crashes, accounting for 31% of all traffic deaths that year.


Since NHTSA began recording alcohol-related statistics in 1982, drunk driving fatalities have decreased 52% from 21,113 in 1982. Since the inception of The Century Council and our national efforts to fight drunk driving, drunk driving fatalities have declined 35% from 15,827 in 1991. (Source: NHTSA/FARS, 2011).
