I came across this in Squire and wondered if any of you posted it? It doesn't have a source, but I'd like to track it down...

I'll have a look when I have more time Bunter, but try looking up "the Borkenstein dip" or "Grand Rapids Study". It's quite a famous result.

I think the study's very controversial, and has been refuted on a number of occasions, but I think it was the one which first proved the exponential increase in risk of drink-driving.

SQUIRE probably needs to have all that info in the level2 text, but it'd take a good few minutes of research to get a handle on it all.
