The 4th of July is notorious for DUIs. In fact, on this day -- our nation's independence day -- DUIs are one of the major causes of vehicle accidents and deaths.
DUIs are a problem every day of the year. In 2012 there were 10,322 deaths involving drunk driving, which represented nearly one-third of all vehicle deaths that year. From 2008 to 2012, 4th of July vehicle deaths totaled at least 765 people.
