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.
