DUI Study Released - Interesting Statistics

The Scripps Howard News Service has released some interesting figures concerning traffic deaths and the link to alcohol.  In all of Cook County there were 6,000 traffic deaths between 1994 and 2008.  Roughly one-third of the deaths can be linked to drinking and driving.  Cook County's portion of I-94 is ranked the 11th most dangerous road in the United States with a total of 301 deaths between 1994 and 2008.  More than 100 people die in traffic accidents in the United States every day.  In Lake County, 30 people were killed on Illinois 173 and 30 people were killed in Will County on I-53.  The study also suggests that people drive differently depending on the type of road.  For instance, only 24 percent of deaths on interstates involved alcohol.  However 31 percent of deaths on state roads were related to alcohol and 39 percent of deaths on county roads were related to alcohol
