Accelerating Progress to Reduce Alcohol-Impaired Driving Fatalities
PIN: IOM-BPH-15-18        

Major Unit:

Institute of Medicine
Transportation Research Board

Sub Unit: Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice

RSO: Geller, Amy

Subject/Focus Area: Health and Medicine; Transportation and Infrastructure

Project Scope
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.

The project is sponsored by the Department of Transportation. The approximate start date for the project is October, 2016. A final report will be issued to the sponsor approximately thirteen months from the start date.
