Fatalities in Motor Vehicle Crashes Involving High Blood Alcohol Concentration

(BAC ≥ 0.08 grams per deciliter)


National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates the proportion of fatalities with a high Blood Alcohol Concentration for cases in which alcohol test results are unknown. The sum of individual state fatalities with a high BAC may therefore not add to the U.S. total due to rounding of these estimates.
