(WKBW/ABC News) Drunk driving is still a serious problem in this country, but a new study shows drivers are getting better about drinking and getting behind the wheel.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says DWI's in the U.S. have dropped 30 percent in the last five years.

In 2010, they were at the lowest level in nearly twenty years.

Some say the decline is due to the economy. Instead of going to out to drink, people are staying home.
