The Alcohol Industry’s Involvement in Global Road SafetyPosted November 22 2020
This study showed that the alcohol industry acknowledges that driving under the influence of alcohol is an issue but argues for solutions that would limit impact on sales. Four ways in which the industry has been involved in road safety is identified. This study also shed light on the lack of cohesion within and among the public health and road safety communities, particularly with regard to the topics of receiving funding from and partnering with the alcohol industry.
The study highlights the urgent need to increase awareness about the involvement of the alcohol industry in road safety and to build a cohesive transnational alcohol control advocacy alliance to curb injuries and deaths related to driving under the influence of alcohol.
