AbstractAs part of a study of the association between alcohol consumption and road crash involvement, a survey of the extent of alcohol usage by the general population of drivers was conducted in the Adelaide metropolitan region. The survey involved obtaining a blood alcohol reading from breath samples provided by drivers on major roadways. Variables of interest were age, sex, time period, day and site. Interviewers also provided a subjective assessment of whether the respondent was drunk or sober.

Methodology Content
Sampling Procedurenon-probability selection The driver of the first car, station wagon, utility or panel van to stop for the red signal at traffic lights of selected sites was approached. Bus and truck drivers and motor cyclists were excluded. Sites were selected by dividing the inner metropolitan area of Adelaide into four regions and selecting five sites from each region, together with a specified direction of travel for each site. Traffic signals where the usual duration of the red phase was 30 seconds were required.
