  • Abstract:
    Young adult drivers 21 to 34 years old are a particularly highrisk group for impaired-driving-related crashes. Numerous studies have found that approximately half of intoxicated drivers had their last drink at a licensed bar or restaurant, and the most significant risk factors associated with drinking and driving were the amount of alcohol consumed and whether obviously intoxicated customers continued to be served. In a systematic review of interventions designed to reduce alcohol use and its related harms in drinking environments, results of the studies indicated that responsible beverage service (RBS) training and follow-up enforcement and/or monitoring could be effective tools in lowering the rates of high-risk alcohol consumption and impaired driving. Some of the results suggest that RBS training can be effective as one aspect of a multi-component intervention. The objective of this study was to implement and evaluate a multi-faceted intervention that integrated outreach and responsible beverage service training, targeted enforcement, and corrective actions by an enforcement agency to a random sample of identified problem bars. The goal of the RBS/enforcement program—through training and enforcement—was to reduce the practices of over-serving and serving obviously intoxicated individuals in bars and restaurants. The long-term goal of the program was to reduce driving-while-intoxicated (DWI) arrests and impaired-driving-related traffic crashes involving 21- to 34-year-olds.
