How does your state stack up? Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has released a report rating all 50 states on their efforts to crack down on drunk driving fatalities. Individual states were awarded stars for passing legislation within various categories, including interlock ignition (devices that measure drivers’ BAC and are installed in cars of offenders), roadside sobriety checkpoints and child endangerment laws (which consider driving under the influence to be a form of child abuse).

According to this map (below) there are 13 states states with five stars, including Maine, Kansas and New Mexico. The highest rating goes to Virginia. The states with the least anti-drunk driving legislation are Montana, Kentucky and Vermont.
