An interesting article recently ranked the states in order of the effects of drunk driving in each state. Wyoming was ranked as the worst and New York as the best. Texas was number 12. Here is the beginning of the article:
DUIs are going up in America. Over 10,000 people were killed and more then 200,000 were inured in 2015 alone as a direct result of someone driving under the influence. We set out to figure out how bad drunk driving is in America, and the results are bad. To create a ranking of states, we took a combination of deaths directly attributable to DUIs, DUI arrests per 100,000 people, and drinking too much before driving, as reported by drivers themselves. We then created a weighted formula. The results are below – let us know how your state did and what you think in the comments!
