On January 1, 2001, there were 234,826 drivers in Wisconsin who had one OWI on their records. On the same date, there were 58,931 drivers who had multiple OWIs on their records. This ranged from 2 to 13 offenses.
With numbers like this, it is no wonder that so many people die or are injured as a result of drunk driving. There are many more people who are guilty of driving drunk than there are OWIs on the record. However, generally the ones who cause accidents recieve OWI charges.
