THE PREVENTION OF DRUNK DRIVING AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE: PROCESS AND PRODUCT EVALUATION OF TRAFFIC SAFETY ACTION

In the context of a research convention between the French Ministry of Transport and the French National Institute of Traffic Safety Research, the authors have been asked to study the effects of various traffic safety initiatives dealing with the prevention of drunk driving among young people. They will present the effect on young people's behavior of: the lowering of the legal blood alcohol limit from 0.8 to 0.5 in September 1995; the development of self-control strategies (small breathalyzers in the car, and public breathalyzers in bars and discos); the promotion of designated drivers; the organization of driving back (free buses from the discos); and the educational programs. The effects may be analyzed at three levels: accident rates of young drivers; violation rates of young drivers; and representations, attitudes and behaviors related to the preventive action.
