What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the number of alcohol / impaired driving crashes that occurred on Allen County roadways during calendar year 2015.

Why this is important?   Numbers of alcohol/impaired driving crashes are indicators of the safety of county and township roads, city streets, as well as state and interstate highways.   Tracking and examining the contributing factors to all crashes allows planners, engineers, law enforcement, as well as emergency responders to identify problems and work to reduce the incidence of these events.

Technical Note:    Most recent available Ohio crash data for 2015 reports that impaired driving crashes accounted for 4.14% of all Ohio traffic crashes; while, Allen County impaired crashes accounted for 3.92% of all Allen County crashes.
