Reduction of DUI’s
The problem we have acknowledged is that there is a significant amount of people are dying from DUI each year about 30 people die each day from drunk drivers every 48 minutes a person is killed from drunk drivers and drunk drivers take 10,000 lives per year and these are just based on the numbers from 2017, but in 2018 it went up to 10,874 most of these occurrences with drunk drivers happen on the fourth of July or other holidays
This issue should be taken care of because people lose family and loved ones and we don’t want that. Fixing this situation by adding more precautions and getting alcoholics the help they need will benefit the world. What we hope to achieve is less death and more control over the situation people may not like this change because of the fact that some people have an alcohol addiction and won't be willing to give it up.
What actions can we do to stop this crisis is:
Take away alcoholic drinks with to much alcohol in them .
We can ban alcohol for at least a year.
More taps that stop at a certain point .
Breathalyzers inside cars then if it’s over the limit the car will shut down and not let the person drive and call someone to escort them to their house.
If at big event the security could see if the person is to drunk to drive.
