Understanding women's drink driving behaviour (2017 - in progress)
The principle outcome of this project is to provide research evidence and new knowledge for the identification and development of countermeasures (e.g., messaging, advertisements, education programs, enforcement campaigns and other strategies) specifically targeting women’s drink driving behaviour. It is proposed that current countermeasures are not effective in targeting women’s drink driving behaviour, given the observed increase both nationally as well as internationally. Further, as men still account for the majority of drink driving incidents, our current state of knowledge remains based on male precepts and constructs of the behaviour which are arguably inappropriate for targeting women engaging in the behaviour. The extent, nature, and reasons underlying women’s drink driving remain largely ignored and this lack of knowledge inhibits intervention design and even policy development.The aims of this project are to:
