This booklet focuses on impaired driving. The first section presents 21 facts on impaired driving. These include the number of people who lost their lives in alcohol-related crashes; the leading cause of death for young people; the average amount of alcohol consumed by people arrested for driving under the influence; the estimation that a tax amounting to approximately 35% of the retail price of beer would halve the number of alcohol-related fatalities among 16- to 21-year-old drivers; the fact that marijuana severely impairs driving; and the likeliness that fatal crashes will occur during the night rather than during the day. The second section presents an annotated bibliography of 12 prevention materials on impaired driving. These include newsletters, brochures, posters, books, comic books, videos, and fact sheets. The organization, year, format, length, context, topic, target audience, readability, and availability are listed.
