"Drunk driving is 100 percent preventable," said Jim McGreevy, Beer Institute president and CEO. "Members of Congress from across the country and from both sides of the aisle are lending their voices to reduce drunk driving and save lives. Brewers and beer importers are parents and neighbors, and we want our roads to be safe in every community throughout the year. We appreciate these lawmakers' leadership in spreading the message of responsibility in their home states and districts."
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, drunk-driving fatalities have decreased 51 percent since 1982.
