The state population is 2 million. New Mexico also had the sixth highest rate of drunken driving fatalities, at 5.6 per 100,000 residents, or 116 deaths.

The FBI's Uniform Crime Report is the only official tally of crime nationwide. But it is a voluntary program, and not every police agency submits corresponding data. CarInsurance.com calculated the rate of DUI arrests using the populations of the participating agencies, as estimated by the FBI.

Drivers in New Mexico will see a 59% hike, according to a CarInsurance.com analysis of rates from six major carriers.
