Kansas Drunk Driving Fatalities Increase

Kansas has been working hard to decrease the alcohol related fatalities in the state for the past several years.  That is all the more reason that the new statistics hurt when they came out.  Click on the Picture Below to see the video from KWCH on the recent rise in alcohol related fatalities by over 30% this past year.

National numbers for alcohol related fatalities were down by around 5% during the same period of time.  Kansas passed new drunk driving laws this year to help deal with the increasingly difficult problem.  Kansas is only second to New York when it comes to the highest percentage increase in this category nationwide.  Not a statistical category we want to lead in.  The new policies including ignition interlock for all drunk drivers in Kansas.  States that have a properly monitored Ignition Interlock program show up to 40% reduction in alcohol related fatalities.  In Kansas that would account for about 60 lives in 2010, quite a difference.
