In 2011, 1 million teenagers reported drinking and driving

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted a study in relation to teen drinking and driving and recently published the results.

The results indicated that teen drinking and driving has declined quite significantly over the last two decades. For the study, thousands of high school students were surveyed, representing 41 different states across the country.

The study was administered in 1991, and a reported 22.3 percent of the high school teens reported that they drove under the influence of alcohol within 30 days of taking the survey. Two decades later that number had dropped to 10.3 percent. Even though that number was on the decline, roughly one million teens admitted to drinking and driving during the 2011 calendar year.

Hit-and-run victim was bribed by drunk driver

A hit-and-run accident that took place on Tuesday in Oklahoma City led to a driver getting arrested on several charges, including driving under the influence.

The accident took place at the intersection of Interstate 240 and South Eastern Avenue. A 60-year-old driver said he was hit by another vehicle around 10 p.m. that night. When he got out of his car to exchange information, the driver who caused the accident attempted to bribe him with money before leaving the scene.

The 60-year-old followed the intoxicated driver until authorities could pull him over. Open beer cans were found in the man’s car, and his BAC was o.17, which is more than two times the legal limit. No one was seriously injured in the collision.
