It is important to recognize that high levels of community education, enforcement, and penalties have led to major improvements in road safety. However, a serious problem that remains is the representation of drink driving as a contributing factor in more than one-quarter of fatal crashes. An important response has been increasing attention to developing and evaluating rehabilitation programs to reduce offender recidivism. At least three initiatives over the last decade deserve examination by the international public health community. These are programs linked with mandatory alcohol-ignition interlocks, interactive internet-based interventions particularly addressing attendance challenges, and increased attention to programs targeting first offenders to prevent recidivism.
This Special Issue calls for the submission of papers on this issue to enable broad interchange from different countries and models to inform ongoing evaluation and progress in this important public health field.
