Transparency: Which States Have the Drunkest Drivers
A new national survey by the U.S Department of Health and Human Services found that 13.2 percent of people over 16 drove while intoxicated in the past year, while 4.3 percent drove while under the influence of drugs. Where in the country are people making the best and worst decisions about their driving?
CORRECTION: Because of an editing error, the graphic does not fully list the states with the highest rates of drunk and drugged driving.
North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Wyoming should all also be listed as in the top quintile of drunk driving. Wisconsin (23.7 percent) and North Dakota (22.4 percent) are the states with the highest levels.
New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont should all also be listed as in the top quintile of drugged driving. Rhode Island (7.8 percent) and Vermont (6.6 percent) are the states with the highest levels.
We regret the error.
