A Psychosocial Comparison of Drunk Drivers and Alcoholics.
Selzer, Melvin L.; And Others
A self-administered questionnaire was used to compare selected driving, personality, and psychosocial variables of 306 convicted male drunk drivers with those of 289 alcoholics and 269 controls. The drunk driver group fell between the other groups on many parameters but resembled the control group on as many others. While some 40% of the drunk drivers appeared to be alcoholics, they showed significantly less psychosocial incapacity than the alcoholic comparison group. Conversely, the non-alcoholics in the drunk driver group appeared significantly more maladjusted than the control group. (Author)
