crash-test-1620608_1920Throughout Canada, the rate of impaired driving collisions has declined over the last two decades. However, the rate of drivers accused of impaired driving offences is highest among young adults. According to a 2002 report from Statistics Canada, drivers aged 19 24 had the highest rate of charges related to impaired driving.
Based on teenage impaired driving statistics from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Canada, auto accidents are the number one cause of death among young Canadians aged 15 25 and 50% of those crashes involve alcohol. These fatalities are truly tragic because they were truly preventable.
