DRINKING-DRIVING PATTERN OF A RANDOM SAMPLE OF PERTH DRIVERS

The percentage of drivers who drive at times with an illegal BAC (blood alcohol concentration) was estimated in a study conducted in Perth, Australia. 369 women and 363 men were surveyed at 6 shopping centers. The survey results were compared with the results of a similar survey in 1977. Among other factors, it was found that less than 40% of the men who drink alcohol drive at times with an illegal BAC; in the earlier study it was found that 71% of the male drinkers drove at times with an illegal BAC. It was also found that there was a general increase in alcohol consumption among women.
