State Of Knowledge: Female Drunk Drivers
A report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation, with funding from the Century Council provides a current state of knowledge about drunk driving among female drivers. Its objectives are to describe the magnitude of the female drunk driver problem, the characteristics of these offenders, the current involvement of female drivers testing positive for alcohol in fatal crashes, and effective strategies that are available and being applied to manage this population.
Research ranging from the 1980s through to present day is reviewed in chronological order in Section 3 (Magnitude of the Problem) and Section 4 (Characteristics of Offenders) to provide a complete perspective on this problem and also a sense of how it has evolved over time.
