The second Bulletin documented trends in alcohol-related serious road injury throughout Australian states and territories between 1990 and 1997. It was estimated that 31% of all driver and pedestrian road deaths in Australia are alcohol-related. National rates of alcohol-related deaths and hospitalisations declined between 1990 and 1996, broadly following changes in per capita alcohol consumption. Most of the reduction occurred between 1990 and 1992. Most jurisdictions followed the National trend, only WA showed an increasing trend in serious road injuries.
