Last year I ran with a blog entitled “What is Wrong with Wisconsin?” chiding the state with a flurry of W’s over their excessive drunk driving and underage drinking rates.
Considering that the official state beverage of Wisconsin is a sober glass of milk, it’s hard to miss the irony in that the state also leads the nation in those that admit to driving under the influence. Add the fact that it also has the dubious honor of scoring the highest percentage in the nation for underage drinking, and it’s even harder not to ask the question, “What’s wrong with Wisconsin?”
An additional W inspired scolding seems appropriate according to Judge George S. Curry who says Wisconsin has the weakest driving under the influence laws in the nation.
