Despite significant road safety improvements in the last four decades, drink driving continues to be a leading cause of road fatalities and injuries in Australia. Over the years the responses to drink driving have become increasingly varied and multidisciplinary as we have gained a better understanding of the drinking driver. Drawing on a comprehensive body of Australian and international research, the following seminar will present a discussion on the best practice guidelines for the delivery of drink driving responses. The seminar will cover drink driving enforcement and its underlying deterrence mechanisms as well as related responses aimed at sustaining the prevention of drink driving. They include publicity campaigns, drink driving penalties, rehabilitation programs and vehicle sanctions.
