TOTAL IMPAIRMENT RISK FACTORS

Age related factors exerted a powerful interventing influence upon the risk of being killed for drivers of various ages. Non- impaired drivers age 30-34 were found to have the lowest risk of fatality. On the other hand, age-related factors inflated significantly the risk of fatal collision for both the very young (age 16-19) and older (over age 50) non-impaired drivers. The combination of the two above indicies allowed an assessment of individual impaired driver's Total Risk of fatal collision involvement relative to the average non-impaired driver. This study looks at the total impairment risk factors and presents statistics and discussion of those factors. /RTAC/
