A survey found some Americans are drinking and driving during this pandemic.

The personal finance website ValuePenguin.com says 43% of people have admitted to driving under the influence of alcohol.

Another 45% said they had rode in a vehicle with a driver who had been drinking.

The main reasons they gave were that they thought they were traveling only a short distance and others were not able to drive.
