Nearly two-thirds of the fatal snowmobile accidents last year in Wisconsin involved the use of alcohol. This statistic is pretty alarming, knowing that many of these accidents could have been possibly avoided if the driver was not impaired.
Many of the individuals involved in fatal accidents had a blood alcohol content above the legal limit. In many cases, the BAC was two or three times the legal limit, which would indicate that the driver was seriously impaired.
Speed has also been determined as one of the main factors in these fatal accidents. Speeds above 60 miles per hour on some snowmobiles have been one of the main factors in other crashes.
