Aims:
  • Provide a series of graphical models contrasting RBT and ARTC rates after adjusting for the number of licensed drivers.
  • Provide a series of readily interpretable complementary descriptive and regression model estimates.
  • Provide an evidence base for all states and territories to hypothesise about state-specific characteristics critical to policy decisions for RBT operations in Australia.

Random Breath Testing and Alcohol-Related Traffic Crash Rates

This research examines the relationship between random breath testing (RBT) and alcohol-related traffic crash (ARTC) rates for all Australian states and territories. The results will provide an evi-
dence base to consider best practice in terms of setting ratios of RBTs to licensed drivers.

The research draws on three administrative data sources with data spanning 1 January 2000 to 30 September 2012.
