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
