Worst States For Drunk Driving

With the warmer weather not too far away, more picnics and outdoor parties will be taking place. That also means more people tempted to drive home after having a few too many adult beverages. If you’re wondering where you’re most likely to encounter a drunk driver, you can rest pretty easy here in the northeast (with Maine being the exception). The worst states for drunk driving are:

  1. Wyoming
  2. North Dakota
  3. South Dakota
  4. Montana
  5. South Carolina

The states with the least drunk driving incidents are:

  1. New York
  2. Massachusetts
  3. Illinois
  4. New Jersey
  5. Utah

Connecticut ranks 12th on the second list.

To rank the states, the web backgroundchecks.org 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. Then they created a weighted formula to determine the lists.
