DRINKING AND DRIVING IN THE NETHERLANDS OVER A FOUR-YEAR PERIOD

Alcohol use of drivers increased over the years for both men and women and both early and late at night, but particularly for drivers coming from pub or bar. In this sample, alcohol consumption increased rapidly with age up to about 50 years. However, younger drivers comprised the larger part of motorists coming from pub or bar.
