In: Abstracts and Reviews in Alcohol and Driving, Vol. 5, No. 4, Oct.-Dec 1984, p. 3-15

Authors: Alexander C. Wagenaar

This paper reviews available evidence about the effects of economic conditions on alcohol-impaired driving. Discussed here are effects of economic conditions on health indicators, alcohol consumption, the incidence of motor vehicle crashes, and incidence of alcohol-impaired driving. A model of potential effects of economic conditions on alcohol-related traffic crashes is suggested, and recommendations for further research are presented.
