A lot of research has gone into understanding how drunk driving works. Why do people do it? What outside forces influence it? What trends can we find?
A woman from Le Mars, Iowa, was arrested in Alton on Sunday, June 23. The arrest happened early in the morning, per reports that came out quickly the following day.
News reports are just coming out about a campaign that the police ran in Iowa and neighboring states on April 19 and April 20. They claim that around 737 people got arrested while driving under the influence in just those two days.
A recent news report took a look at the driving infractions in various states, specifically looking for issues with repeat offenders involving offenses like speeding, operating while intoxicated (OWI) and more. They then ranked the states based on how often these happened.
