While there is a lot of work around drink-driving, it generally focuses on young men and the risk they pose to themselves and to others.  There is no doubt that young men are the most concerning demographic.  However, with the on-going publicity around young women and binge drinking, this report analyses the available statistics on young women and drink-driving, and older women and drink-driving, as well as looking at media reporting of incidents involving them.  Older and younger women were also interviewed about their behaviour and attitudes towards drink-driving.  Campaigns are not necessarily seen to be relevant to women and while they still remain an absolute minority in terms of drink-driving incidents, there does need to be some consideration paid to more inclusive ways of addressing the issue.
