Almost 1 million Ohioans had their driver’s licenses suspended for drunken driving, with 107 of them having 20 total suspensions, an analysis of state data by the Dayton Daily News showed. At least three others had more than 18 convictions. Additionally, data showed that more than 266,000 Ohio residents have received three or more drunken driving suspensions.
2.3 million of the 12 million license suspensions gathered from the public safety department database are the result of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Most of those suspensions—98 percent, to be exact—have occurred since 1983, with men being responsible for four in five of the drunken driving incidents.
The analysis also showed that courts have punished more than 21,000 people with “habitual alcoholic” suspensions, which are imposed on violators who have incurred three suspensions for operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI) in a three-year time frame.
