In Denmark is mopeds a relatively limited amount of the total number of private vehicles, but yet a significantly higher number of spiritusulykker with promiller than 2.0.
It writes the Statistics Denmark in a press release.
Mopeds accounts for 3.4 percent of all private vehicles registered in Denmark, but in the accident statistics, they represent 38 percent of the spiritusulykker with a bac of more than 2.0. The higher the promillen becomes, the more it fills the mopeds in the statistics of spiritusulykker in traffic, shows the inventory from Statistics Denmark.
- Knallertkørerne reaches 13 percent of the spiritusulykkerne, where promillen is in the low end of the scale, ie. between 0.5 and 0.8 per mille, which knallerternes share of spiritusulykker increases with promillen, says Henning Christiansen, head of section at Statistics Denmark, in a press release.

In 2018, there was 56 spiritusulykker in traffic, where one or more persons came to harm, and where the driver of the crashed vehicle had a bac of 2.0 or more. Mopeds accounted for 21 of these spiritusulykker with over 2.0 parts per thousand, which is equivalent to 38 percent of all spiritusulykker of the type in 2018.
the Figures cover only spiritusulykker personal injury cases, where the police have been summoned. According to Statistics Denmark, the figure is therefore underestimated, since spiritusulykker, which did not come to police knowledge, including those recorded in the emergency departments, not included in this statistic.
over a 10-year period, the number of spiritusulykker, where knallertføreren have exceeded the legal alcohol limit has fallen sharply.
In 2008, there was 224 spiritusulykker on mopeds, where knallertførerens limit was exceeded. This number had fallen to 65 in 2018, which corresponds to a decrease of 71 percent.
This is the number of spiritusulykker of mopeds also declined more than the number of spiritusulykker with busted blood alcohol limit is in general. For all drivers of vehicles and pedestrians, this figure has dropped from 744 in 2008 to 259 in 2018, representing a reduction of 65 percent.
