The science What science relates to this accident
Lets focus on two areasSpeed and stopping distanceThe effect of alcohol on the bodySpeed and stopping distanceAt 65 km/h, the risk of crashing is double the risk at 60 km/h.
The risk doubles for each 10km/h a vehicle travels above the average traffic speed.
Alcohol and reaction timesat a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 gm/100ml
reaction time of the average driver doubles from 1.5 s to 3.0 s
a driver is more likely to respond incorrectly to stimuliThe combination of speed and alcohol will always be tragic
