The downward trend in alcohol-impaired driving was the subject of an international forum at The Hague in the Netherlands, convened in September 1993. Traffic safety researchers from the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden submitted papers and took part. A summary of the proceedings -- The Nature of and the Reasons for the Worldwide Decline in Drinking and Driving -- was published recently in the United States by the Transportation Research Board of the National Research Council. Studies in all of the countries show a pattern of decline in drinking and driving starting most often in the 1980s. All of the countries have engaged in multiple prevention activities of one kind or another during this period, so the search for cause-and-effect relationships can be frustrating.
