With more than 30,000 fatalities on UK roads between the year 2000 and 2013, it's shocking to know that drivers are still dying on our roads due to drink drivers. On the other hand, it's reassuring to know that the number of accidents linked to drink-driving on British roads has dropped to the lowest point since records started.

According to the latest figures from the Department for Transport (DFT), accidents involving alcohol in 2013 dropped by approximately 1,000 cases to 5,690. However, the number of people killed in crashes related to drink-driving remained unchanged for the fourth year at 240, which dropped from 580 in 2004.
