Drunk Driving

The dangerous of drunk driving are well known. The impairment caused by alcohol consumption frequently leads to devastating vehicle collisions which often result in incapacitating injuries and even deaths. 

We recently examined crash data from the Texas Department of Transportation to answer the question: Which Texas cities have the highest drunk driving fatality rates? Unfortunately, Houston clocked in at #9 on that list with a devastating 4.36 annual drunk driving deaths per 100,000 residents.
