From the Paper:

"Despite increasing efforts from governments at all levels, drunk driving remains a highly serious and ongoing international problem that causes countless injuries and deaths all over the world. Indeed, as one authority emphasizes, notwithstanding the enormous amount of resources devoted to combating the problem, "The incidence of driving while under the influence of alcohol is one of the most frequently committed crimes throughout the world" (Newaz, 2006, p. 531). Unfortunately, the statistics concerning the incidence of drunk driving in countries around the world confirm this alarming statement. For instance, fully 16 percent of all road deaths are caused by drunk drivers, and in Ontario, Canada alone, more than 12,000 drunk driving-related automobile crashes occur every year (Newaz). The United States experiences its unfair share of drunk driving fatalities as well, with 41 percent of the approximately 43,000 automobile deaths each year being the responsibility of drunk drivers (Newaz). One of the more perplexing aspects of these disturbing trends in drunk driving is the fact that the laws against impaired driving have never been stricter in these and other countries (Mejeur, 2003). Moreover, the courts in many countries remain ineffective at prosecuting drunk drivers because of procedural and administrative problems (Mejeur, 2003)."
