The vast majority of adults in America consume alcohol on a weekly, if not daily basis and the people of Georgia are no different. While the rates and the quantities may vary, it is safe to say that it is a staple of Georgian life. Alcohol is used to celebrate, to commiserate, to socialize, to blow off steam, to relax, and a variety of other social reasons. While it obviously serves a purpose and is not an issue if consumed wisely and in moderation, drinking can lead to some very negative things, especially when driving. More than a quarter (25%) of all traffic-related deaths are the direct result of alcohol/drug impairment. As of 2020, about 290,000 are injured in such accidents every year. 18.9% of respondents admit to driving while buzzed. 2.1% admitted to driving while high, and 5.6% admitted to driving while buzzed and high. There have been at least 300 deaths per year within the state that have been credited to impaired driving.
