The Nation's Top Strategies to Stop Impaired Driving

Impaired driving is one of the most serious traffic risks facing the Nation. The impaired-driving problem is complex and requires the full range of countermeasures. Recognizing the challenges that States and communities face in making progress in reducing impaired driving, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is focusing on four strategies that are crucial to making further reduction in the number of annual alcohol-related traffic deaths. These strategies are discussed in this brochure. They include encouraging implementation of high-visibility law enforcement, support for prosecutors and Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) courts, increased use of medical screening and brief intervention for alcohol-abuse problems, and enactment of primary seat belt laws.
