Eliminating fatalities on New Hampshire roadways is an important vision and the primary role of New Hampshire Troopers. It is also an important vision for the public, all of whom travel New Hampshire’s roadways—by car, motorcycle, truck, bicycle, or even on foot—day and night under all types of weather conditions.
Drive Sober or get pulled over.
Drunk driving is a deadly epidemic that takes the lives of more than 10,000 people each year, on average in the US. Remember to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
In 2013, 10,076 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In fact, every day almost 30 people in the US die in an auto crash that involves an alcohol-impaired driver. New Hampshire crash statistics show that driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs (over-the-counter, prescription and illegal) caused crashes resulting in fatalities and serious injuries.
