On average drunk drivers will drive 80 times before they are caught, post substance abuse officials said during drug and alcohol awareness training April 23.
"You have an obligation to not let them" drive under the influence, said David Bennett, prevention coordinator for Fort Jackson's Army Substance Abuse Program.
Representatives from Mothers Against Drunk Driving were the guest speakers for the training.
According to MADD, every 2 seconds someone is injured in a drunk driving crash, while every 51 minutes someone is killed by a driver under the influence. Thirty-three percent of all driving fatalities in South Carolina were caused by drunk drivers. In 2016, the state ranked 41st in the nation for drunk driving prevention.
"If you see this happening; if you see somebody you know who" is drunk and preparing to drive stop them from getting behind the wheel, Bennett said.
