For cars, alcohol is responsible for 33-38% of deaths (depending on the definition of impaired). This has been dropping slowly both in percentage and absolute terms, with some upward blips based on economic strength (stronger economy = more driving, more deaths, and higher percentage of alcohol deaths).

MADD says more, unfortunately they are as much a self perpetuation organization as a road safety organization, because they've refused to also say anything about the danger of cell phones, aggressive driving etc. - I've specifically requested

I don't know the percentage for pedestrians, probably similar. 23% might be the lowest of road users. Have you seen the guy with two custom built racks on the back wheel which fit two cases of 24 perfectly? Genius!
