Marijuana Legalization Cuts Down on Booze-Related Pedestrain Deaths Says New Study
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that some 32 people are killed due to drunk driving everyday. This equates to one death every 45 minutes, a senseless and completely unnecessary preventable death. The fact that alcohol consumption greatly impairs drivers has long been known, yet people continue to do it. Booze alters one’s judgment, severely impacts one’s ability to concentrate, affects coordination and vision – all of which contribute to impaired driving which can kill pedestrians.
