DUI Stop

Spring break, St. Patrick’s Day and even just a day of barbecuing are all contributing factors.

As we move closer to spring time, we move closer to events that involve drinking. Many of us partake in adult beverages during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, spring break parties, or simply a warm day out by the pool. In my opinion, none of these things are considered bad if they are handled responsibly.

And that means not getting behind the wheel of a vehicle afterward. recently compiled a list of states that are the worst offenders when it comes to DUIs. According to their research, the number of DUIs reported continues to rise in the this country and some states are worse than others.

Unfortunately, the Ark-La-Tex didn’t fare too well on this list.

All three states, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas, landed in the Top 15. Arkansas pulled a Top 10 showing on this list. The contributing factors include the number of fatalities, the average number of arrests and the percentage increase or decrease from the previous year. They compiled their data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

Here is their list the 10 states with the worst drunk driving problems…

1. Wyoming

2. North Dakota

3. South Dakota

4. Montana

5. South Carolina

6. MIssissippi

7. New Mexico

8. Kentucky

9. Maine

10. Arkansas

12. Texas

13. Louisiana

The good news, is that we can fix this problem. It just takes a little bit of planning ahead.
