This chapter reviews the impact of alcohol control measures on traffic safety. It begins by summarizing evidence on the effects of deterrence and remedial initiatives. Although not commonly considered alcohol control measures, they act at least in part by affecting the psychological and social availability of alcohol, and are widely considered to be key factors in recent reductions in drink-driving deaths. It then examines research on the link between alcohol control measures and traffic safety more directly, including a consideration of the role these measures may have played in reductions in drink-driving deaths over the past few decades and their potential for influencing drink-driving rates in the future.
