Samenvatting Provisional estimates for 2013 show that between 230 and 290 people were killed in accidents in Great Britain where at least one driver was over the drink drive limit. * Around 15 per cent of all deaths in reported road traffic accidents involved at least one driver over the limit. * The number of seriously injured casualties in drink drive accidents decreased by 8 per cent from 1,200 in 2012 to 1,100 in 2013. * The total number of casualties of all types in drink drive accidents for 2013 was 8,290, down 17 per cent on the 2012 figure. * In 2013/14, 5.9 per cent of drivers admitted to driving when they thought that they might have been over the drink drive limit. * In 2013/14, 0.7 per cent of drivers admitted to driving when they thought that they might be under the influence of illegal drugs. This publication presents estimates of casualties arising from reported accidents involving at least one motor vehicle driver or rider over the legal alcohol limit for driving, in Great Britain in 2013. Figures are derived from the Stats19 forms completed by the police plus toxicology data for road fatalities from coroners and procurators fiscal. These statistics, especially the number of fatalities, are subject to considerable uncertainty. This means that it is impossible to be sure of the precise number of casualties, so ranges and confidence intervals are used throughout the publication. Although the estimated number of deaths rose to 260 in 2013 from 230 in 2012, due to the uncertainty in the estimates this rise is not statistically significant. (Author/publisher)
