The report found that 58 percent of wrong-way drivers were suspected of impairment, a rate that is 12 times higher than for all crashes during the same time period.
Some other findings include:
— At least one in four wrong way drivers had a prior drunk driving conviction, many with more than one.
— In 70 percent of the wrong way crashes between 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m., those incidents were caused by impaired drivers. However during the hours between 6 a.m. and 5:59 p.m., 82 percent of the crashes were caused by drivers not thought to be impaired.
— The crashes occurred on interstates 62 percent of the time, state routes 23 percent of the time and US Routes 15 percent of the time.
