Canadian Drinking & Driving Drops

A national survey reports that fewer Canadians are driving after drinking alcoholic beverages.

The survey by the Traffic Injury Research Foundation revealed that the proportion of Canadians who reported that they haven’t driven after drinking any time during the previous month increased from 82% to 85% between 2004 and 2005.

The study also found that 93 percent of Canadians said they hadn’t driven when they thought they were over the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit any time during the past year.
