Description
 
This report examines the relationship between the blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) of young drivers 16 to 20 years old and a comparison group (drivers 21 to 34) involved in fatal crashes and the following factors:  restraint use, previous driving while intoxicated (DWI) conviction, driver license status, number of vehicles involved in the crash, speed limit, vehicle type, number of vehicle occupants, driver gender, time of day, day of week, holiday period, season, rural/urban status, and region of the country. The report examines the relationship between BACs and the above-listed factors first with an exploratory data analysis, presenting percentages based on the two most recent years of available data (2008-2009), and then by an ordinal logistic regression analysis, using 2000-2009 data. The report demonstrates that the most significant factors for predicting the driver BAC level were restraint use, previous DWI status, and the time of day. Specifically, unrestrained drivers, drivers with DWI convictions recorded within three years of the crash, and drivers at night were likely to have BAC values in higher BAC categories than drivers not fitting this profile. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
