DRINK DRIVING ENFORCEMENT AND PUBLICITY CAMPAIGNS: ARE THE POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS SENSITIVE TO MODEL SPECIFICATION?

The Australian State of Victoria has conducted an average of 53,727 breath tests per month between July 1989 and December 1992. The number of breath tests per month has since been substantially increased in Victoria as well as other states in Australia. The results of the campaign have been extensively evaluated and the mixed results have generated much public debate. This paper has evaluated the effectiveness of the campaign and tested several model assumptions and specifications. The results obtained have been found robust and have showed that the campaigns have been effective in reducing serious crashes during high alcohol hours.
