THE PREVENTIVE EFFECT OF INFORMATION CONCERNING DRIVING WHEN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL

DE PREVENTIEVE FUNCTIE VAN VOORLICHTING IN VERBAND MET RIJDEN ONDER INVLOED

The many countermeasures, including information, regarding driving under the influence of alcohol, have a preventive effect. The information plays an important role in informing the public of legislation concerning alcohol. It is, however, not possible to measure the exact effect of the publicity campaigns. A decrease in the number of fatal accidents can be expected. The number of drivers under the influence of alcohol has decreased as was shown in police records. If the legislation and the information are to have a lasting ffect, a follow-up of the publicity campaign and subsequent police control will be necessary. /TRRL/
