Miami Beach: Drunk Driving Dangers

Miami Beach is one of Florida’s main attractions. According to the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, or GMCVB, Miami Beach is responsible for bringing in 24.2 million tourists in 2019. Whether you are drawn to the sunny beaches who’s Art Deco hotels and storefronts meet the Atlantic Ocean, or you are interested in the historically energetic nightlife, Miami Beach has much to offer for adult tourists looking for a good time. This hedonistic reality comes with a cost, however, as many who visit Miami Beach end up driving their cars inebriated from local bars and nightclubs, making the streets particularly dangerous for other cars, pedestrians and locals, as well as for themselves.

Miami tourists come from across the world. Most national tourists visiting Miami Beach are either from Atlanta and New York City, typically during holiday weekends such as Memorial weekend or of course Spring Break. Avvo called Miami Beach the 10th most dangerous Spring Break destination in the world. 

10.4 % of automotive deaths in Miami Dade are alcohol related, and 3.2 % of all arrests in Miami Beach are DUIs. According to South Miami Recovery and Capital One, Florida is the 9th most dangerous state to drive with a 12.4 % alcohol related fatality rate. 

Because of the late night culture in Miami Beach, the high traffic the city brings, and the complicated roadways, constant construction, and relatively high pedestrian presence, Miami Beach is a generally complicated place to drive. This complexity matched with intoxication makes for a dangerous combination which has taken the lives of thousands of drivers.
