Dry Adair Co. has had its share of fatal alcohol related accidents

Writer asks: How does delaying the purchase of alcohol by 30 or 45 minutes make this a safer county?

Chris Knifley writes:
For the record, Adair County had 2 fatal alcohol related accidents in 2012, 1 in 2011, 1 in 2010, 0 in 2009, and 1 in 2008. Since we are using Breckinridge County as a "See, I told you so example, " in 2008 they had 1 alcohol related fatal, 3 in 2009, 3 in 2010, 0 in 2011, and 2 in 2012. All these tragedies occurred in dry counties. How does delaying the purchase of alcohol by 30 or 45 minutes make this a safer county? The stats are taken from the Kentucky Traffic Collision Facts Publication. - Chris Knifley
