Effectiveness of drink driving countermeasures : national policy framework.

Howard, E. Harris, A. & McIntyre, A.

This report provides an Australian policy and regulatory framework to encourage effective reforms to reduce and prevent drink driving and riding. The key recommendations to reduce drink driving across Australia include: * extending a lower legal BAC limit to more drivers; * improving general deterrence through more highly visible and randomised enforcement, combined with covert operations; * expanding the use of interlock programs, with improved monitoring and case management; * working more closely with the alcohol and other drug (AOD) sectors to manage alcohol dependent drivers; * supporting measures to reduce societal use of alcohol; * fast-tracking vehicle based systems to prevent alcohol impaired driving. Each Australian jurisdiction has a different starting point, but all can improve their policies and practices by implementing short and long term measures. These will be required to achieve the overall goal of eliminating drink driving related deaths and serious injuries. The development of the Australian Drink Driving Policy Framework involved a literature review and development of a policy discussion paper as well as consultations with jurisdictions about current and potential drink driving countermeasures.
