In CA it is zero tolerance for minors. .01 will get you a DUI if you have a strict cop.

But yeah, good call, I was wrong about the limits.

It makes sense that Vegas and NYC isn't on the list... True, many people get drunk often in both cities, but they are two huge markets for cabs.
Given the amount of drinking that goes on in those cities, people are generally pretty responsible about it.

I'm shocked Milwaukee isn't on the list.

To give you an idea of just how insane drinking is in Wisconsin, here is a comparison of the amount of bars in California, New York and Wisconsin:

California Population: 37 million
Number of Bars: 3100

New York Population: 20 million
Number of Bars: 3458

Wisconsin Population: 5.6 million
Number of Bars: 3043

Wisconsin doesn't have much of a cab system and there is no rail system in the cities... I know a lot of people will walk since the taverns are just plopped on the corner of residential blocks, but still..

in fairness, Wisconsin counts any place that serves alcohol, as a bar so they lump their pre-schools, fire stations and city halls in with this number

Why do these lists always spit out different results? For example, one list has Chicago as #7 or #8, and on this one it's #1.

You're telling me! It makes me instantly skeptical of this entire study. Drunk driving is a way of life here. And people don't just sit home and drink (like in other soused states such as AK and NH), as listed above, they go out and drink at bars and clubs, which are everywhere. In fact, the only counterargument that makes any sense is the one about a bar on every corner. But still....no. Wisconsin drinking is next level. I say this without pride or embarassment, it's just the way it is.
