Iowa Has More Drunk Driving Deaths Than Most States But That May Soon Change

The state of Iowa is taking a good hard look at its drunk driving policies.

Following yet another devastating case earlier this year, officials have decided to implement regulations which will take a new approach to the problem of intoxicated driving. Rather than only reprimanding drunk drivers after the fact, new policies hope to tackle the problem straight at the source, preventing the incident in the first place. Here’s more on “Place of Last Drink” programs and others which hope to tackle this troubling issue in Iowa.

Iowa is not alone in mourning the loss of lives caused by drunk driving, but its new policies may influence the way other states tackle this problem in the future. In the midst of devastating tragedy, hope of preventing further loss in the future is sometimes all there is. What are your thoughts on the matter? Feel free to share with us in the comments below.
