Email

More than a quarter of Wisconsin adults admit driving drunk at least once in a year's time - the most of any state.

That's according to a new compilation of surveys by the federal agency on substance abuse.

The surveys were taken from 2004-06. Twenty-six percent of Wisconsinites 18-and-older admitted to researchers they drove under the influence over the last 12 months.

That's 70-percent above the national average of 15 percent.
