COVID-19 has forced many restaurants to implement serving alcohol to-go in an effort to boost their revenue. Some California legislators are looking to make alcohol to-go a permanent practice, stating that this “lifeline” legislation can help restaurants and similar businesses survive throughout and even after the pandemic. Reactions to this potential change are mixed.

San Francisco Police Department did not respond in time to share the Alcohol-Impaired Driving from 2021, instead is a report by the United States Department of Transportation.

    Where on earth are you getting the numbers for that graph? The NHTSA document you linked as a source says 36,096 total fatalities in 2019 (down from 36,835 in 2018), of which 10,142 were alcohol related (down from 10,710 in 2018). Where are you getting 180K dead, with 170K of them alcohol related, from? Those numbers are not only wildly wrong, but tell an entirely different story regarding alcohol impairment’s impact on the fatality rate.
