CT Drunk Driving Deaths On The Rise

There are new figures on the number of drunk driving deaths in Connecticut.The number of drunk driving deaths is on the rise and this concerns Mother Against Drunk Driving.
With all the work they do there is still a real sense of disappointment over the fact the state is seeing an increasing in the number of dui fatalities.  According to MADD, fatal accidents where the driver was above the legal limit of .08 have jumped.  In 2005, there were 98 deaths in Connecticut. In 2006, the number jumped to 109.  Despite the arrests, the convictions, the increase in criminal penalties and the tragic deaths and injuries, people in Connecticut continue to drive drunk and now there is an increase in deaths associated with drinking and driving in our State.  This is truly upsetting.
