Ireland has come in 25th place in Europe for drink-driving related deaths.
One in ten fatal car crashes globally are caused by alcohol, with men more likely than women to drink drive, according to a new report by Allianz.
When it comes to Europe, alcohol-related fatalities are highest in eastern countries, while Italy has the lowest number.
In most countries men are twice as likely to be killed in drink-driving crashes as women and Ireland is no exception.
Almost 20% of fatal accidents involving men are down to alcohol consumption while the figure for women is just 8%.
