Drinking and Driving: A Road Safety Manual for Decision-Makers and Practitioners

Research has found that a large proportion of drivers, pedestrians and motorcyclists - in many countries - have a high enough concentration of alcohol in their blood that their judgment and driving skill will be impaired. Unfortunately, the problem is not well understood in many countries, enforcement and legislation are not adequate enough, and there is not much awareness by the public of the problem. The goal of this manual is to disseminate information on how to develop integrated and coordinated safety programs to reduce drinking and driving in a nation. Private vehicle drivers are targeted, as well as commercial drivers and motorcyclists. The manual takes the reader through a step by step process in problem assessment, planning and implementation, and program evaluation. It includes samples of laws and traffic law enforcement, and publicity and public education campaigns. The manual does not include pedestrian safety or programs.
