Arkansas falls low on lists for a lot of things. It is 49th in health care,  48 on crime and corrections, 41 on the economy, and 41 in education. But it is 28th on this list and it is actually a good thing.

Arkansas ranks 28th in the number of drunk drivers. Zutobi had a recent study that shows that Arkansas is actually doing well in this statistic. The good news overall is that DUI and fatalities are down since the 80s. In 1985 41 percent of all road fatalities were alcohol-related. In 2019 that number is down to just  28 percent.
