Underage Drinking and Driving in Virginia

DUI Rates in Yorktown Virginia 

Virginia struggles with underage drinking and driving, as evidenced by the higher-than-average statistics for underage DUI fatalities. A dui attorney from Montgomery, Kelley & Dennett understands these statistics and are here to help you!

Like other states, Virginia has a zero-tolerance law concerning anyone under 21 consuming alcohol and driving. Certain times of year are prone to higher episodes of underage drinking and driving, including prom and graduation.

According to the CDC, the percentage of teenagers 16 and older who drink and drive decreased by half between 1991 and 2011. However, one in ten high school students still reported drinking and driving one or more times.

Because teen drivers are three times more likely to get into a fatal crash, consuming alcohol increases that risk significantly.
