ATTITUDES TO ALCOHOL WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO ROAD SAFETY. A REPORT OF RECENT STUDIES IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND IRELAND . PREVENTION AND CONTROL/REALITIES AND ASPIRATIONS. PROCEEDINGS OF THE 35TH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON ALCOHOL

There is evidence that the UK and Irish Governments fail to appreciate the weight of public opinion behind a demand for a tightening-up in current drink/driving legislation. In particular the introduction of random breath testing in the UK would receive public support contrary to the view expressed by the Government. The greater concern by young people in the UK about the social consequences of drunken driving would seem to testify to the value of publicity and education in influencing attitude. In Ireland a more tolerant attitude prevails and there would appear to be a need to step up the degree of public awareness of the serious implications of a continuance of this attitude.
