DUI-Related Offense Correlation to Increased Crash Involvement

Traffic crashes stem from a variety of underlying causes. Too often, the cause is risky driving whether it is speeding, running a red light, or driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol. These risk factors have all been associated with increased risk of crashes. The goal of this work is to consider whether multiple citations for DUI-related offenses are linked with higher crash rates. This glimpse into DUI-related crash involvement contributes to knowledge about driver drinking, crash involvement, and recidivism will enable policymakers and public agents to direct resources to efforts that reduce social and economic losses from traffic crashes.
