Iowa struggling in drunk driving survey


MASON CITY, Iowa – A new survey from “Mothers Against Drunk Driving” suggests Iowa has a long way to go when it comes to dealing with intoxicated drivers.
MADD gave Iowa two out of five stars, saying it is among the worst in the nation for drunk driving laws.
This is why legislators are looking at bills to require ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers, and legalization of sobriety checkpoints in the state.
In 2012, 92 people were killed in crashes involving a drunk driver in Iowa.
That represents 25% of all traffic fatalities in the state.
