ALCOHOL, AGE AND FATAL TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS

Higher blood alcohol concentrations were found in drivers killed in one-car than in two-car accidents, in nighttime than daytime accidents and, among drivers under age 30, in weekend than weekday accidents. The peak occurrence of single-car crashes was found at a younger age than the peak blood alcohol concentration, suggesting that some age-related factor in addition to drinking is involved.
