An annual report which presents information about association between drink driving and accidents, results of breath tests of drivers involved in accidents and enforcement action relating to drink driving.
- In 2015, 7.1 per cent of all drivers of motorised vehicles and 14.3 per cent of motorcyclist drivers/riders killed in traffic collisions were above the drink drive limit.
- The Department of Transport (DfT) report that 5.4 per cent of killed and serious injury accidents (KSI) that occurred in Wales in 2014 involved drivers over the blood alcohol limit.
- In terms of road accidents, police officers’ views about the contributory factors that led to accidents suggested that 8 per cent of KSI accidents during 2015 involved drivers that were impaired by alcohol.
- In 2015, 63 accidents where the reporting police officer identified pedestrian(s) being impaired by alcohol as a contributory factor to that accident.
- In 2015, there were approximately 5 accidents where the driver was impaired by alcohol, for every 1 accident where a driver was impaired by drugs.
