Drunk driving deaths surge in Iowa as license revocations remain few
Fatalities related to drunk driving on Iowa roads increased last year, but fewer drivers are having their licenses revoked.
Last year, there were 123 deaths related to drunk driving recorded in the state, an increase from the 110 fatalities recorded in 2014. Despite the mild surge in fatalities last year, the number of licenses revoked has dropped by hundreds since 2014. An official speaking for Mason City Crime Prevention stated that there are some drivers who are bad drivers even when their blood alcohol level is well below the .08 percent limit. The Crime Prevention Coordinator elaborated that it is important for individuals who are planning to drink to have a designated driver even if they are only planning to have a few drinks.
