Dallas’ Rate of Fatal Car Wrecks Involving Intoxication is in Top 5 of Largest Cities

This is not a statistic Dallas wanted — we rank really high in several categories of drunk driving collisions and fatalities.

All the data can be found at the UX blog, and the story was reported in the Dallas Morning News. Here are a few quotes from the New article:

Dallas’ rate of fatal car accidents involving drunken driving is a whopping 41.4 percent. That ranks the city No. 5 of the nation’s 25 most populous cities in fatal car accidents involving intoxication.

Here’s how it’s broken down: Dallas’ population is an estimated 1.2 million, making it the ninth most populous city in the country. It ranks fourth in fatal crashes per 1,000 people (about 1.15) and fifth in fatal accidents involving intoxication (about 0.48). That puts Dallas at a rate of 41.4 percent, behind only Denver, Houston, Chicago and Phoenix. Austin was also in the top 10, with a rate of 40.3 percent, and Fort Worth was 12th at 35.9 percent.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
