NASEM develops report on eliminating alcohol-impaired driving fatalities
A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) discusses the elimination of alcohol-related traffic fatalities over the next 30 to 40 years. The report explores the perspective that every fatality is a failure of a system with many interrelated parts. Each system component has weaknesses that can be addressed through the adoption of the promising interventions pulled from the scientific literature and summarized in the report. Prevention professionals and public officials who wish to solve such traffic problems should read and consider recommendations made in this latest NASEM report. “Getting to Zero Alcohol-Impaired Driving Fatalities: A Comprehensive Approach to a Persistent Problem” is available for download online.
