Youth Driving without Impairment. Report on the Youth Impaired Driving Public Hearings (Atlanta, Georgia; Boston, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; Fort Worth, Texas; Seattle, Washington). A Community Challenge.
National Commission against Drunk Driving, Washington, DC.
The testimony heard by the National Commission against Drunk Driving on how to prevent alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes, which constitute the leading cause of death for youth of driving age, resulted in some of the recommendations in this report. The document consists of an executive summary, a preface, an explanation of the Youth Impaired Driving Model, an introduction, a chapter on findings and recommendations, a chapter on general recommendations and conclusions, and three appendices. Aimed at making youthful impaired driving socially intolerable, the Youth Impaired Driving Model focuses on a systemwide approach with the following components: (1) school responsibilities, (2) extracurricular activities, (3) community responsibilities, (4) work-based activities, (5) enforcement, (6) licensing, (7) adjudication, (8) supervision, and (9) legislation. The chapter on findings and recommendations contains a section on each of the nine components in the Youth Impaired Driving Model and makes recommendations regarding each. Four general recommendations and conclusions are also given. The appendices contain a directory of youth programs; lists of advisory committee members, committee members who wrote the report, and panelists and presenters who appeared at the five hearings; information from a 1988 survey on drinking and driving among high school seniors; and statistics on youth fatal crashes from 1982-1987.
