Interesting that it seems the more strict the alcohol laws, the less responsible the drinkers.

All the god-fearing Christian states are full of people driving drunk and running into family minivans. Interesting...

Not sure if I agree with this. Colorado has VERY harsh consequences for a DUI (including losing your license for a year or more, a ****load of cash ~$10-15k, having a VERY VERY hard time getting hired for 7 years, etc.) and is one of the "more responsible" states.

I lived in Wyoming for 5 years and DUIs were a slap on your wrist and a pat on the butt (typically $750 fine, loss of license for 3 months, a few alcohol classes, and often knocked down to a misdemeanor instead of a felony) and is one of the "more reckless" states.

Too many varying factors. I was only in one single DUI traffic check in over 10 years in CO. When I moved to North Carolina, I have been in 9 in just over 3 years.

New Jersey is the absolute worst as far as ANY traffic related offense.

The system beats you into submission honestly, and I have money to blow.

Probably less chance of being caught when you can drive for 45 minutes and not see another soul.

Is it really drinking and driving when there is no one within a hundred miles to see it?

Only took a few posts to get the political angle on this. BTW, I was thinking the same thing!

It's a pretty striking correlation that's hard to miss.

There is a piece of data missing in this map



So the color map is obviously not reflective of the totals. For example Utah is has a comparative very small amount of drinkers. The few that do aren't incredibly responsible. Their net cause in accidents is probably incredibly small and likely beats most states even if they were much more irresponsible.

I'd bet that the total fatalities of Las Vegas still easily beats places like Kansas and Wyoming.

I'm curious as to how they came up with their alcohol consumption numbers.

The natives don't have cars. It's hard to get a DUI for stumbling down the side of the road. I'm being serious.

Hard, but not impossible. Ask my buddy who happened to be next to a bike with the keys in it when he was wasted...

I think he's talking about stricter availability laws more than the punishment. These dry counties are less responsible drinkers.
