It sort of makes you wonder if something is affecting the thought processes of these people. For the alcohol people to draw attention to automobile crashes in light of the data showing how much alcohol is the cause of fatal traffic accidents. Quite a few years ago the data in Wisconsin said that over half the fatal accidents involved alcohol.
From the CDC:
Every day, 28 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 53 minutes.1 The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $44 billion.2
- In 2014, 9,967 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.1
