Located just south of the prestigious and luxurious city of Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, Florida is a hot-spot for many South Florida residents providing the best of both worlds for many prospective residents – attractive housing at an affordable price and still retaining a coveted highly coveted home address. Being primarily a beach community, Deerfield Beach is home to over 75,000 Broward County residents and provides the enjoyable City-Beach lifestyle that nearly all Florida residents aim to have. However, though the sprit in the Deerfield Beach air is of fun and enjoying life in the comforting Florida sun, that relaxing and celebratory lifestyle comes with a fairly unpleasant fact – very high DUI and unseemly alcohol-related deaths. Though the entire country suffers from dealing with fatalities at the hands of drunk drivers, being a vacation and tourist magnet, Florida has an incredibly high rate of people drinking and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle.


As there are literally millions every year that call Florida their vacation destination, there is a very high amount of people who get a bit too comfortable while behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) reports that in 2011 alone, there were 1,140 children age 14 and below killed in a traffic accident. Of those 1,140, 81 children, 16 percent, were killed in an alcohol-impaired motor vehicle driving accident. Moreover, Florida holds the second highest rate of alcohol-related accident fatalities in the entire United States, second only to Texas. Again, according to the NHTSA, there were 2,398 fatalities in the state of Florida for 2011 with nearly 25 percent of the responsible drivers were over twice the legal limit. Respectively, 503 drivers or 21 percent of the total amount of drivers from alcohol-related injuries had a BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) greater than .15 percent.
