One in 10 binge drinkers got behind the wheel the last time they drank heavily. And half of those drivers left from a bar, restaurant or nightclub after downing five or more drinks, a new study has found.
The study is being called the first to try to measure the likelihood someone will drive after binge drinking. It suggests a need for stepped-up efforts to prevent bars and restaurants from serving people after they’re intoxicated, according to its authors at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Neither should it be a surprise that North Dakota’s universities are having problems with drinking and that the University of North Dakota ranks among the nation’s top 20 party schools.
