Alcohol, teenagers and the safety of our roads.
Alcohol And Driving
ON THE ROAD
- Don’t drive like you own the road. Drive like you own the car.
- Watch out for aggressive drivers, and try to stay out of their way.
- Stay focused.
THINK ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES, DRINKING KILLS!
In the five years to 1987, more than 110 drivers and motorcycle riders that were killed each year had a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) greater than 0.05g/100ml. This has dropped to an average of 40 drivers and riders killed each year over the last five years with a BAC greater than 0.05g/100ml.
The proportion of drivers and motorcycle riders killed with a BAC greater than 0.05g/100ml has declined from 38% in 1987 to 24% in 2012.
