Comparison: Crashes by Age and Gender
Knowing the age and gender of those who are most likely to drink and drive can go a long way towards developing an effective prevention strategy. For instance, the data shows that men are more likely than women to be in fatal alcohol-related collisions. In fact, they are five times more likely.
Additionally, we can glean from this data that men between the ages of 21 and 49 accounted for 653 of the 1,052 fatal alcohol-related collisions in New Jersey during the period analyzed, or 62 percent. Clearly, this demographic is where the problem lies. It could be highly effective to craft anti-drunk driving messages that target men in this age group.
