Top states for drunken driving arrests

3. Wyoming

WyomingWyoming, less populated than every state except Alaska, had the highest rate of drunken driving deaths in the nation, at 8.2 per 100,000 residents, or 48 people killed, in 2014. The state had the fourth highest rate of DUI arrests, at 71.1 arrests per 10,000 people.

Wyoming is one of 12 states without sobriety checkpoints. They include two other states with high DUI rates -- Alaska and Idaho -- and one with among the lowest DUI rates -- Rhode Island, which also has a low incidence of drunken driving deaths.

The Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police told the Wyoming Tribune Eagle in December that drinking and driving was the most common offense for which people are arrested.

Car insurance rates in Wyoming rise by an average of 57 percent a year after a DUI conviction.
