Research Areas: Criminal Justice, Public Safety

This fact sheet presents several aspects of the sometimes deadly linkage between alcohol and traffic collisions. It briefly examines Indiana’s comparative status among other Great Lakes states, different dimensions of alcohol-related collisions (e.g., injury status, who was killed or injured, time of occurrence, etc.), the general incidence of alcohol and drug testing, and the blood alcohol content (BAC) test results reported in the Indiana Vehicle Crash Records System database. Finally, county-by-county data on alcohol related collisions are presented, in addition to the distribution of Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) cases reported by the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
