According to the Journal Sentinel series on Drunk Driving that I recently posted about Wisconsin:

Wisconsin has the largest percentage of binge drinkers and the largest percentage of drunken driving accidents, yet several states take a harder line on alcohol issues than Wisconsin. Click the topics below to see how Wisconsin compares to the rest of the U.S.

You need to see this diagram.  It looks like Wisconsin makes up almost 1/4 of the nation’s drunk driving accidents.  Wow.   I don’t know really what to say to that.  It’s embarrassing.  In this case it is NOT good to be #1.


Jon Groth is a Wisconsin Personal Injury Attorney handling cases throughout Wisconsin and most recently in West AllisCrivitzPlymouthand Germantown.

Makes you wonder about the drunk driving habits of the legislators…

WOW! Did I read this correctly? 23% of the adults in Wisconsin participated in binge drinking within the last month? Amazing.
About 6 years ago I wrote a little book called “20 Good Reasons to Stay Sober (even if you don’t have a drinking problem)”. One thing I’m certain of is that you’ll always have drunk driving stats as long as you have binge drinking. Binge drinking is the absolute root of the problem.
