Notes: A driver or nonoccupant involved is considered alcohol-related if he/she is involved in the fatal crash and exhibits a BAC of 0.01 or greater (the last column on the right in the tables). A fatality is considered alcohol-related if any driver or nonoccupant involved in the crash had a positive BAC. Estimates are presented for four categories: (1) BAC of 0.00 (no alcohol), (2) BAC of 0.01-0.09 (low alcohol), (3) BAC of 0.10 or greater (high alcohol), and (4) BAC of 0.01 or greater (any alcohol, the sum of (2) and (3)).
