Drinking And Driving Still A 'Serious' Public Health Problem

WESTPORT, Dec 03 (Reuters Health) - Despite decreases in the number of alcohol-related traffic fatalities in recent years, the federal government warned in a report released Thursday that drinking and driving remains a "serious" health problem. "In 1998, 15,935 people died and 305,000 were injured in alcohol- related traffic crashes in the United States," officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.
