These numbers are high, but not nearly as high as actual DUIs.

Here is the quick list of top 10 cities for fatal DUI accidents:

1. San Bernardino, California
2. Mobile, Alabama
3. Riverside, California
4. Tulsa, Oklahoma
5. Lubbock, Texas
6. Knoxville, Tennessee
7. Fresno, California
8. Spokane, Washington
9. Sacramento, California
10. Little Rock, Arkansas

DUIs have a high cost, both human and financial. In 2012 alone, 10,322 people were killed in alcohol-related vehicle accidents. There’s also the staggering economic cost of drunk driving — an estimated $199 billion a year in the U.S. And the financial burden after receiving a DUI can be crippling for drivers, who have to pay expensive fines and court costs, then pay again after their car insurance premiums increase.

Drivers in some cities are disproportionately affected by these costs. For example, you are more likely to encounter a drunk driver in Tulsa, Oklahoma, than in San Francisco, California. Even so, the cities with the highest number of fatal alcohol-related vehicle crashes per capita aren’t the cities where drivers see the steepest auto insurance increases after receiving a DUI.
