This chapter describes the relationship between drinking and driving, and how an understanding of that association can be used to design countermeasures which prevent alcohol-related injuries and death. It begins with a discussion of blood alcohol concentration as the key mechanism of alcohol-related harm. Current theories of harm-minimization are described before reviewing the evidence supporting various legal and regulatory measures as well as rules and procedures designed to reduce driving under the influence of alcohol.
