One in five people has driven after drinking alcohol at least once in the past year, according to a new survey released by the Or Yarok (Green Light) traffic safety organization ahead of Purim.
Jerusalemites were the least likely to drive after drinking alcohol, with only 8% reporting they had driven after imbibing in the past year. Approximately 23% of residents in the southern and northern region said they had driven after drinking alcohol, similar to 20% of residents who said they drank and drove at least once in Tel Aviv and the center of the country.
Or Yarok released the results of a 500-person phone poll ahead of Purim’s parties due to the drinking associated with the holiday, which falls on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
