Accelerating Progress to Reduce Alcohol-Impaired Driving Fatalities

Type: Consensus Study
Topics: Public Health, Substance Use and Mental Health
Board: Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice

Activity Description

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requests that the Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convene a committee to examine:

  • which interventions (programs, systems, and policies) are most promising to prevent injuries and deaths from alcohol-impaired driving;
  • the barriers to action and approaches to overcome them; and
  • which interventions need to be changed or adopted. 
In conducting its work, the committee may consider interventions implemented by other countries.  The committee's recommendations will be broad reaching and serve as a blueprint for the nation to accelerate the progress in reducing alcohol-impaired driving fatalities.

As of March 2016, the Health and Medicine Division continues the consensus studies and convening activities previously undertaken by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).
