Roadways in the state of Nevada are dangerous enough, but when drunk drivers get behind the wheel, the chances of an accident occurring dramatically increase. Statistics say that a person is killed by a drunk driver every 40 minutes in the United States. Recently, an accident in Las Vegas involving an alleged drunk driver claimed the life of a motorcyclist.
