The United States has four times as many people as the UK but has twenty times as many fatalities related to drunk driving. I follow up my discussion of bars and parking with this data exploration of drinking, driving, and DUI's with some unexpected and interesting results.
Drunk driving is a behavior on which we spend a lot of effort discouraging and yet somehow largely ignore the importance of design. This article asks whether America has a drinking problem or a driving problem? What's worse yet, is that through things like minimum parking requirements and zoning we are virtually coding a problem into existence.
