DWI fatalities in North Carolina fewer in 2014 than in 2013

Posted on January 7th, 2015 No Comments

The North Carolina Highway Patrol reported that the number of people who died due to alcohol-related crashes in the state were fewer in 2014 as compared to the number of fatalities in 2013.

Out of the 5,460 alcohol-related crashes investigated by the Highway Patrol in 2014, 181 people perished. In 2013, the fatality rate was at 228 people.

State Highway Patrol commander, Colonel Bill Grey, said they will work full force to prevent incidents of DWI in North Carolina roads by fervently implementing drunken driving laws. In fact, state patrol troopers made 20,012 DWI arrests during the whole of 2014, which may have contributed to the decrease of alcohol-related driving accidents.
