IDENTIFYING ADOLESCENTS AT HIGH RISK FOR DRINKING AND DRIVING . PREVENTION AND CONTROL/REALITIES AND ASPIRATIONS. PROCEEDINGS OF THE 35TH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON ALCOHOL

This article presents the results from a cohort study, focusing on the students at particularly high risk of future drinking and driving, and discusses the results with respect to their potential implication for primary prevention of drinking and driving. These results suggest that preventive efforts ought to focus on methods to alter the normative acceptance of drinking and driving, and on providing skills so that all adolescents can identify and avoid drinking and driving situations both as passengers and as drivers. Furthermore, preventive measures must include strategies to reduce the opportunities young people have to engage in drinking and driving. Such strategies might include reducing car and/or alcohol availability for adolescents as well as access to alternative places for young people to socialize. (Author/TRRL)
