Says drys miss the point, don't see correlation

The recent years drop in DUIs statewide coincides with the mass movement in Kentucky to end probition

Shannon Sexton writes:
Any life lost on Kentucky roadways is tragic, however should one assume that since Horse Cave had a DUI fatality, they would of had 3 if Horse Cave were not moist? Reports from KSP show DUI collisions DECREASE when a county/city chooses to end prohibition.

I've taken a lot of flack for showing DUI's going down in wet/moist areas. The reasoning from the Dry side is that Kentucky in general is realizing lower DUI rates state wide. Kentucky is also realizing a mass movement of ending prohibition. Surely you can see the correlation of the two. --shannonstatelinesteelcom
