A COMPARISON OF ALCOHOL INVOLVEMENT IN EXPOSED AND INJURED DRIVERS
The primary objective of the study was to determine the relationship between alcohol and injury-producing automobile accidents. Alcohol related data collected from drivers involved in injury-producing accidents were compared with the same type of data collected from drivers who were similarly exposed to accident conditions but who did not have accidents. Results of the study indicate that over-involvement of alcohol exists in injury-producing automobile accidents to a highly significant degree. Efforts are supported to develop countermeasures designed to reduce the role alcohol plays in non-fatal as well as fatal type automobile accidents.
