DRUG RESEARCH METHODOLOGY. VOLUME I. THE ALCOHOL-HIGHWAY SAFETY EXPERIENCE AND ITS APPLICABILITY TO OTHER DRUGS

The report presents the findings of a workshop concerning the alcohol and highway safety experience, which includes research efforts to define the drinking-driving problem and societal responses to reduce the increased highway safety risk attributable to alcohol. A cross-disciplinary panel of experts examined its history, methodologies employed in research, and approaches to the development and implementation of preventive measures (countermeasures). From these discussions a conceptual framework for use in comparing alcohol and other drugs was developed. Categories include (1) the process of risk identification; (2) measures of risk to indicate impaired driving ability; and (3) approaches to preventive measures that reduce the increased highway safety risk attributable to alcohol and other drugs. The report summarizes comparisons between alcohol and other drugs.
