To date, comprehensive analyses of data that link the circumstances of fatal crashes with detailed information on the background and previous behavior of drivers in those crashes have been lacking.  This report fills some of those gaps using analyses of national-level data.  To help remedy this deficit, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) provided investigators with a linked database in which background ("follow back") information from next-of-kin of drivers killed in crashes was combined with information on the same drivers and crashes, available from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).  The availability of data from all these NHTSA sources provided an opportunity to perform three sets of analyses in relation FARS data.  8.5" x 11", three color, 36 pages.
