What is this Indicator?  This indicator depicts alcohol / impaired driving fatalities as a percent of total crash fatalities that occurred on Allen County roadways during calendar year 2016.  In 2016, there were five impaired crashes resulting in five fatalities, 41.7% of all traffic fatalities. 

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.
