    This project provides information about norms and attitudes related to alcohol usage and driving. This volume reports the methodology, findings, discussion and conclusions of three focus groups: two with parents of teenaged drivers and one with adult males (ages 39-59). The parents groups were conducted to explore parents' perceptions of the teenage drinking/driving problems and what can be done to help parents prevent their teenagers from DWI. The adult males group was conducted to explore adult males' perceptions of the DWI problem and what can be done to prevent adult males from DWI. Participants from all the groups agreed that there needs to be a massive public information and education campaign effort to prevent drunk driving. In regards to their own knowledge about alcohol induced impairment, participants in all groups had difficulty describing the early signs of impairment. In general, the findings suggest that adults are concerned about the DWI problem in our society and that they feel that there needs to be more support systems (e.g., public information, government intervention/programming) to create a social environment that is less tolerant of drinking and driving. Information on the other aspects of the project can be found in other volumes of this report as follows: Volume I--Review of the Literature; Volume II--Meta-analysis of Primary Prevention Studies; Volume III--Report of Individual Interviews; and a booklet entitled, "Suggestions for Developing Prevention Programs to Reduce the Incidence of Alcohol-Impaired Driving". /Abstract from report summary page/
