Abstract [en]

Speed and drink-driving are two of the key behavioral risk factors in road traffic safety alongside with non-use of motorcycle helmets, seat-belts and child restraints. Changing road user behavior on these five factors is a critical component in reducing road traffic injuries which are responsible for more than 1.2 million deaths and up to 50 million nonfatal injuries each year. Road traffic injuries are currently the ninth leading cause of death globally and predicted to become the seventh leading cause of death by 2030. In these circumstances, road safety more generally, and speed-related and drink-drive related road traffic injuries in particular, represent an important issue on international organizations’ agenda.

The aim of this study is to profile drivers in the UK who are more likely to be involved in collisions and assigned the ‘exceeding speed limit’ or ‘impaired by alcohol’ contributory factors. The two profiles are then compared, identifying the common and the distinctive characteristics. The findings are discussed for relevance in designing common and separate speeding and drink drive campaigns.
