ABC 11 recently did an investigative story exposing how one Holly Springs resident received two DWI’s in four hours. He was let go so quickly after the first arrest, he was able to get behind the wheel again while still intoxicated.  View more about the incident here.

Other statistics published by MADD state an average person will drive drunk 80 times before being arrested for a DWI and one in five teens binge drinks . “Binge drinking occurs when someone consumes more than five alcoholic drinks on the same occasion on at least one day in the past 30 days,“ according to MADD.
