Highway Drunks Rate as Number 1 Problem
Dr. William Haddon Jr., director of the National Highway Safety Bureau and one of the best-known figures in the highway safety field, calls drunken drivers "the number one problem on our highways."
Dr. Haddon, a physician who has studied the problem of intoxicated drivers in depth during the past ten years, can speak with monumental authority on the subject. And his claim is substantiated by other major investigations, all of which show alcohol as a cause factor in almost 50 percent of the fatal crashes.
