Alcohol involvement in road crash casualties, Victoria, Australia

This paper presents the results of compulsory blood alcohol estimations obtained on all road crash casualties aged 15 years and over who have attended Victorian hospitals for treatment since the collection and analysis of samples began in October, 1974. The blood alcohol concentrations (BAC) of injured road users are compared with those of fatalities and those obtained by breath analysis. Any assessment of the value of and the need for compulsory blood alcohol testing of road crash casualties must be measured against the broad Australian canvas of alcohol use and abuse.
