A motor vehicle crash is considered to be alcohol-related if at least one driver or nonoccupant (e.g., a pedestrian or pedalcyclist) involved in the crash is determined to have had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.01 grams per deciliter or greater.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates alcohol involvement when test results are unknown.
