Top states for drunken driving arrests

8. Nebraska

NebraskaWhen the financial site WalletHub ranked states in 2015 on their DUI prevention and enforcement actions, Nebraska fared well, emerging as the third strictest in penalties and the sixth strictest overall.

In 2014, its drunken driving fatality rate was 3.2 per 100,000 residents, slightly above the 3.1 national average.

But Nebraskans still drink and drive more than most, according to surveys by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Or maybe Cornhuskerers are just honest. When asked if they'd driven while impaired in the past 30 days, 3.4 percent said they had, compared to 1.9 percent who admitted to nationwide.

They paid the price, with the eighth highest DUI arrest rate in 2014: 49.5 per 10,000 residents, for more than 8,300 arrests total. Drivers in Nebraska will also pay more for car insurance: a DUI conviction hikes rates by an average of 70 percent a year, according to CarInsurance.com's rate analysis.
