A survey of nationwide drunk driving and drugged driving rates found that New Hampshire has some of the highest rates of driving while intoxicated in the nation, according to the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) tracks the rates of drunk driving and drugged driving in each U.S. state and compares them from year to year. The NSDUH uses self-reported information, or information from individuals ages 12 and older.

Although the NSDUH has found that the overall rates of driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI) have decreased in each state over the last decade, it also found that drunk driving and drugged driving rates remain high in several states, including New Hampshire.
