Alcohol-impaired drivers make up about
one-third of all motor vehicle deaths.
On average, one alcohol-impaired-driving death occurs every 45 minutes. Each year, impaired- driving crashes cost the U.S. more than $50 billion. Every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver.
The Task Force
The Orange CountyDUI Task Force was formed in 2009 as part of the Alcohol Impaired Driving Task Force of Costa Mesa and in response to local research noting the need for a community response to address alcohol and/or drug impaired driving issues in Orange County. The coalition is led by the Automobile Club of Southern California and the County of Orange Health Care Agency Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention Team (ADEPT).
