According to a federal survey, more than 26 percent of Wisconsin adults ages 18 and up admitted to driving under the influence in the previous year. This is the highest percentage of the 50 states and is more than 70 percent above the national average of 15.1 percent.
Analysts speculate that this percentage is not surprising and is on par with other alcohol-related data concerning Wisconsin. The state is among the nation’s leaders in per-person alcohol consumption and has had the country’s lowest abstention rate for several years.
