It is illegal in Connecticut to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08%, and the threshold is even lower for commercial drivers and drivers under the age of 21. Despite national and statewide campaigns, and the efforts of MADD, drunk driving continues to kill more than 10,000 people each year according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The NHTSA reports that in 2012 drunk driving fatalities not only increased by 4.6%, but they accounted for 31% of the overall traffic fatalities. In that same year, there were 236 total traffic fatalities in Connecticut, 85 of which stemmed from drunk driving.
