The drunkest American cities, ranked

posted by Dave DeVille - 

It's no secret that drinking to excess isn't healthy, but the residents of some American cities really like to tie one on. On the other hand, some cities are practically teetotal.

The website 24/7 Wall Street crunched the numbers to find out which cities top the list in either case. Green Bay, Wisconsin takes the cake for the state with the highest percentage of people who drink to excess. A staggering 50.5% of driving deaths there are related to booze. 

For the record, Provo-Orem, Utah has been named the driest city in the U.S., not surprisingly, given its large population of alcohol-eschewing Mormons. Just 8.5% of those in Provo-Orem reported drinking to excess; the city had an alcohol-related crash rate of 14.3%.
