Oregon is on a top ten list but this isn't anything to brag about. A new report about impaired drivers ranks Oregon among the worst states with the highest numbers of people driving under the influence of drugs. Counselor Don Ziegler with Serenity Lane in Bend says the report was just issued this month. It puts Oregon with nine other states, in the highest category for impaired drivers.  When you combine those drivers with ones that are drunk and driving, the roads are especially dangerous. "So when you think about that, you've got somewhere between 1 and 6 to 1 in 8 drivers coming at you that are under the influence of something at any given time on the weekend and at night." Most of the other states that ranked high on the report were in the south and northeast.
