Mike and Sean commented on my earlier drunk driving post. They asked whether stiff drunk driving laws reduce accidents and injuries. Good question. I did my usual google search and found a study that dates way back to 1987. It was a Purdue University study that found that drunk driving accidents decreased by 20% after stiffer laws were enacted. But, the number of hit and run accidents increased by 8%.
I’ll keep looking for a recent statistic. If you find one please comment!
Thanks for the comments!

WordPress just made polls available on their blogging service. So, let’s put it to good use.
UPDATE: H/T Sean Sweeney. The graphic from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel states “Number of OWI arrests before it becomes a felony.” I think Sean is right. It should say “Number of OWI convictions.” Good catch Sean!
Thanks for your input!
