Survey Reveals Important Information About Drunk Drivers
It is not a secret anymore that drunk drivers have become one of the main causes of vehicle accidents, crashes and collisions. Who knows? You might even have had your share of drunk drivers who have cost you not much (like getting delayed or having to buy a couple new Lincoln LS aftermarket parts) to having you spend thousands on having your bruises healed or buying a new vehicle.
A survey was currently done by the Century Council and the study was mainly focused on the important things the public needs to know about repeat drunk drivers. What are repeat drunk drivers? Well, these are actually those people who have been drinking and driving since who knows when. They also have already been caught or have already been involved in accidents because of drinking and driving and would still yet have to learn their lesson.
When these repeat drunk drivers were asked what would “definitely make me stop drinking and driving”, the Century Council was able to actually spot three main actions that these people have disclosed during the survey. Some 76 per cent said that a year’s worth of mandatory jail time could make them stop. Three quarters of the respondents shared that a mandatory fine of ,000 could make them stop drinking and driving while another seventy per cent said that if their vehicles had ignition interlocks, it could help them stop their habits. Aside from these around 54 per cent of those who answered the survey said that they were very likely to actually change their ways so much so that they would not have to be arrested of driving under the influence.
The conclusion of the survey from Century Council said that despite the quite high number of drunk drivers, the numbers still reveal and reflect that law enforcement and the judicial system of the country are still in place and are still working perfectly. This would very much be a relief for those people who have started not to believe in these legal powers.
However, there is an interesting twist to the survey. Some eighty per cent of the respondents shared that they do worry about those other drivers who also do drunk driving.
