Drinking and Driving: a road safety manual for decision-makers and practitioners is now available: The international good practice manual Drinking and Driving, a road safety manual for decision-makers and practitioners, produced in partnership by GRSP, WHO, the FIA Foundation, and the World Bank. Developed under the leadership of GRSP, the manual is now available in both electronic and printed form. The manual is the second in a series of road safety good practice manuals being published as part of the UN Road Safety Collaboration series. The purpose of the manual is to inform readers of practical ways to develop coordinated and integrated programmes to reduce drinking and driving (including drivers and passengers of motorized two-wheelers). In many countries road users who are impaired by alcohol have a significantly higher risk of being involved in a crash involving death and severe injuries. The World report on road traffic injury prevention identifies programmes aimed at preventing drinking and driving as a proven effective measure to reduce death and injury on the road. To download the manual visit: www.grsproadsafety.org
