APPLICATION OF A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO DWI AND FATAL CRASHES (WITH DISCUSSION)

In this conference presentation, a macro level, or systems, model for driving while intoxicated (DWI) and fatal crashes is discussed. The discussion begins with background information on how the model was developed and why it contains only four variables. The variables are: (1) Norms, in terms of drinking, driving, riding, DWI or RWID (riding with an impaired driver); (2) Availability of alcohol, cars, drivers, places to go fast; (3) Formal social controls of drinking, cars and driving; and (4) Environmental pressure (which can be either risk-enhancing or risk-reducing).
