People die in drunk driving because of the driver. The driver kills himself and the passengers. He also kills the people in the streets. At a sudden the accidents happen because the vehicles generally run at a higher speed at that time. Alcohol affects the brain parts that take decisions and actions. So a drunk driver can not decide what to do next and at what time. So, he causes the accidents and thus kills many people. Drunk drivers become impaired and he is no more in a state to think anything or do anything.
More people died in 2006 drunk driving. Another reason for that was the alcohol present in their bodies. Most of the drivers arrested or dies had an alcohol presence of more than 0.08 % in their blood (BAC was more than 0.08%). When there is blood in the body the damage as result of crash is more. In the presence of alcohol human body become more vulnerable to the damage and damage to the body is more destructive then. So many people died because of alcohol presence also.
