MSRP (base model): $30,000
MPG: 25 city / 31 highway
The Acura Integra is hitting the roads once again with a much-anticipated relaunch in 2023; while the last new Integra came out over two decades ago, Acura is reviving the iconic sports car, much to the delight of nostalgic motor vehicle enthusiasts. Despite being off the market for the past twenty years, Integra drivers managed to find themselves in booze-induced traffic incidents significantly more often than the typical driver. 126% more Acura Integra drivers have at least one DUI citation on record compared to the national average, making this vehicle the fifth most DUI-prone in the nation.
Drivers reporting a DUI: 43.1 per 1,000
MSRP (base model): $20,650
MPG: 28 city / 36 highway
Mazda3 owners are rightfully proud to drive a sedan that’s sleek, powerful, and budget-friendly. Unfortunately, these drivers also maintain the fourth-highest DUI rate in the nation. Despite earning the title of 2021 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the behavior of Mazda3 drivers leans more reckless than their vehicle may suggest, especially when it comes to getting behind the wheel while inebriated: Mazda3 drivers are cited for driving under the influence 2.3x more than the average driver.
3. Chevrolet Caprice
Drivers reporting a DUI: 43.3 per 1,000
MSRP (base model): $19,110
MPG: 18 city / 26 highway
An oldie but a goodie, the Chevy Caprice was once the most popular car in America from the 1960’s through the early 1970’s. This classic full-sized automobile is a mainstay on U.S. roads even now, despite the fact that its last year of production was over a quarter of a century ago. Not only have Caprice drivers maintained their presence on the roads, but have racked up a pretty high DUI rate while at it: 43.3 out of 1,000 Caprice drivers have at least one DUI citation on record, a share that’s 128% greater than the national average.
2. Chevrolet Astro
Drivers reporting a DUI: 44.5 per 1,000
MSRP (base model): $24,430
MPG: 16 city / 22 highway
The Chevrolet Astro is somewhat of an outlier in the rankings: it’s not a sleek sports car or luxury sedan, but a durable van with high towing capacity, used in many cases for commercial purposes. Although perhaps less fast and dynamic than the other cars in the rankings, Astro drivers still rack up DUIs at elevated rates, comparable to and even more than the drivers of the flashiest cars. 44.5 out of 1,000 Astro drivers report at least one DUI on record, a rate that exceeds the national average by 134% and lands them at second in the rankings.
1. GMC C1500
Drivers reporting a DUI: 46.2 per 1,000
MSRP (base model): $30,000
MPG: 20 city / 30 highway
The vehicle topping the rankings is a repeat offender: not only did the GMC C1500 make the top ten for its drivers’ speeding violation rate, but it’s number one in the nation for their rate of DUIs. With a whopping 46.2 out of 1,000 drivers reporting at least one DUI on record, GMC C1500 drivers are pulled over for driving drunk 144% more frequently than the average motorist. This practical pickup may be sturdier and less flashy than the luxury sports cars that make up a good portion of the rankings, but GMC C1500 drivers make the impractical choice to drive while under the influence more often than drivers of any other vehicle in the country.
