Abstract: Abstract: In view of the problem that it might not be reasonable enough to evaluate and punish drunk driving according to the blood alcohol concentration of the driver, 18 drivers were recruited to join the Uchida Kraepelin (UK) test in order to discover a novel method. The results showed that work curves of UK changed significantly from shaped style to unshaped style as the drivers drank successively, together with increasing values of average work mistake rates. These helped to define a work deviation value. Experiments proved that there existed monotonic consistency relationships between work deviation values and traffic accident tendencies, together with an average coefficient of 0.71. Thus, UK work deviation value was able to uncover traffic accident tendencies of drunk driving, and probably could be a new evidence for judging and publishing drunk driving. UK test and its results analysis may be a potential method for measuring traffic accident tendencies of drunk driving.
