DUI Fatality in NYC

On the night of March 5th, 2023, a vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in the Bronx while being operated by a driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the legal limit of 0.08% (NYPD, 2023). The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was charged with vehicular manslaughter and DUI.

This tragic incident underscores dangers of drunk driving. In the US in 2020, 38% of traffic fatalities involved alcohol-impaired drivers (NHTSA, 2022). Stricter laws have reduced but not solved this public health crisis. Other jurisdictions have experimented with measures like ignition interlocks and suspended licenses for first offenses with promising results (Eisenberg, 2003; DOJ, 2018).
