Summary of the evidence

  • Beneficial

The Community Trials project including community mobilisation, media advocacy, RBS training, and enhanced enforcement efforts against drink-driving and under-age drinking was found to be effective in two narrative reviews (Calafat, 2010; Calafat, Juan and Duch, 2009) in:

  • reducing the rate of night time traffic injuries and the number of hospital admissions due to traffic accidents (116 fewer injury accidents in 38 months in the experimental site compared with the control community) .
