Community-based approaches to highway safety: health promotion and drinking-driving



Community-based approaches to highway safety: health promotion and drinking-driving



Drug and Alcohol Dependence 20(1): 27-37



Traditional preventive tactics in road safety have emphasized technology, legislation and regulation. There is growing awareness and evidence that these methods need to be complemented with alternative approaches, particularly those that acknowledge the importance of life style as a determinant of risky driving. Accordingly, new approaches are emerging that emphasize the need for long-term, individual and community-based approaches in road safety, particularly as a tactic for addressing complex problems, like drinking-driving, that are determined by psychosocial and life style factors.
