Wisconsin has highest drunk driving rates

A staggering number of Wisconsin drivers surveyed by the US Department of Health and Human Services said they had been behind the wheel while drunk in the past year. 26% of drivers 16 years and older admitted to drunk driving. Wisconsin leads the nation ahead of Montana, Minnesota, Nebraska, and the Dakotas for the highest rate of drunk drivers.

45% of all fatal auto accidents and 40% of all fatal motorcycle accidents involved alcohol and killed 238 people and injured 4,000. Nearly 44,000 people in Wisconsin were put behind bars for driving while intoxicated. The federal survey also showed that 1 in 20 people said they have driven while under the influence of illegal drugs.
