This examination of the drunk driving problem points out the "urgency gap" between the overall problem and the individual--in short, the urgency and passion of warnings do not match the day to day risks per person. The question asked is how do we get individuals to change their behavior if they sense no personal urgency. It is concluded that what is needed is a national campaign against drunk driving which will be sustained at a high level for a decade or more.
