According to a recent article in the Capitol Times, falls due to drinking among seniors (defined at 65 and over) result in more deaths than from drunk driving over the past ten years. Drinking rates (including binge drinking) are also higher. The death rate from falls overall in Wisconsin are twice as high as the national average.
