Drinking and Driving is GOOD!?

So, the state of Wisconsin has the highest self reported rate of drinking and driving. However, its actual highway fatality rate is way below the national average.

Not to say that drunk driving isn’t bad, but is it possible that there are other reasons beyond drinking that lead to highway deaths? Could it be more effective to focus on things other than lowering the acceptable blood alcohol level to reduce driving fatalities? Maybe so, but don’t count on politicians to notice it.
