2013 Casper DUI's Fall by Forty Percent

     We've all seen and laughed at the over-the-top drunk driving commercials, but nonetheless, across the United States driving drunk is one of the leading causes for arrests.
     More specifically in Wyoming seventy-one percent of all arrests are alcohol related, so it might come as a surprise  to hear that Casper's total number of driving under the influence arrests has decreased by forty percent.

     One of Wyoming's biggest problems police deal with is alcohol.  Last year's data showed the average blood alcohol content for DUI offenders in Natrona County was .153, which is nearly twice the legal limit.  While that number is certainly nothing to be proud of, there's some good news to speak of so far this year.
