Statistics About Drinking and Driving in Brevard County

According to statistics from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, 2011 saw 55,722 arrests for driving under the influence throughout our state, with 2,203 in Brevard County alone. Drinking and driving is not only a traffic offense, but is a crime due to the fact that it greatly increases the likelihood that the driver will cause injury or death in a car accident. It is a major problem in our state-Mothers Against Drunk Driving reports that Florida ranks 13th in the nation for the number of alcohol related fatal collisions, with 4,140 over the past five years alone.

Law enforcement agencies in our area take a tough stance against drinking and driving, with harsh penalties including driver's license suspension, steep fines and jail time. The DHSMV reports that of the 2011 arrests for DUI, 76% resulted in a guilty verdict. The offender's insurance company will also most likely raise the driver's premiums, and the individual may be required to pay for expensive SR-22 liability coverage.
