Potential to strengthen a commitment to intervene within a friendship group:

– all knew the other passengers, – 3 in 4 discussed intervening with other passengers, – expectations of friends was a key predictive factor.

  • young women have potential and willingness to intervene in their friends’ drink driving behaviour

  • majority of campaigns and strategies to reduce alcohol related crashes target the driver however it is arguable that some strategies should target the young female passenger.
