In , drunk driving fatalities dropped about 4%, accounting for 29% of traffic deaths — the lowest percentage since when NHTSA started reporting alcohol data. Vehicle improvements such as air bags and electronic stability control have also contributed greatly to the reduction of traffic deaths .

    in this Indiana Crash Fact Book are based on guidelines provided by Table Vehicles involved in Indiana fatal and non-fatal collisions, by vehicle type and number of vehicles involved, Figure Indiana alcohol-impaired traffic fatalities as a percentage. race/ethnicity and motor-vehicle fatal crashes to produce tables and graphs that illustrate and complement related findings in the literature (e.g., Table 1. Motor-vehicle crash fatalities and alcohol-related fatalities by year and race/ethnicity).

    The update presented data from NHTSA's Fatal Accident Reporting System (subsequently renamed the Fatality Analysis Reporting System or FARS) providing additional confirmation that the youngest drivers tend to have the highest risk of an alcohol-related fatal crash, on the order of per million vehicle miles traveled for teen-age.   In , alcohol was involved in 2, (or percent) of pedestrian fatalities, 11, (or percent) of vehicle occupant fatalities, (or percent) of pedal cyclist fatalities (as shown in Figure 2). Pedestrians are more vulnerable than highway vehicle occupants are.
