map showing incidence of alcohol related crashes in NC counties. Advocates argue ignition interlocks would prevent many of these crashes.

Researchers tallied the alcohol-related crash rates of all counties in the U.S. and ranked them. North Carolina had 14 counties in the highest rate category (red). Counties marked in yellow were in the middle third for alcohol-related crashes and green counties were in the lowest third. Counties marked in white had no alcohol-related crashes in 2016.
