) declined almost 10% over the previous year; more impressive are the statistics covering the period from 1982 to 1991 where the ARTF
percentage of all traffic fatalities decreased from 57.3% to 48.0% and the proportion of alcohol-impaired drivers in fatal crashes went from 38.9% to 31.1%.(27) It should be noted that all fifty states have increased the penalties for drunk driving.(28) What is more, organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have sponsored an impressive educational campaign to warn people of the dangers of driving while under the influence of alcohol.
The financing includes a $25 million grant from the International Development Association (IDA), the World Bank Group's fund for the poorest countries, and a $75 million grant from the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF
), managed by the World Bank on behalf of 34 donors.
