Buckley, Lisa, Sheehan, Mary C., Chapman, Rebekah L., & Davidson, Cathy (2012) "My friend was over the alcohol limit, so I asked him not to drive" : Young females intervening in alcohol-impaired driving.

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.
