Alcohol Consumption and Risk-Taking Behavior: an Analysis of 17-Year Data on Fatal Traffic Accidents

In this paper, I analyze 17-year individual-level data on fatal traffic accidents (n = 488,829) and show that a large proportion of traffic accident fatalities attributed to alcohol consumption occur because inebriated victims (both drivers and occupants of the vehicle) are less likely to be restrained.
