Deterrent effects of drink driving enforcement: some evidence from New Zealand

Tay, Richard S. (2005) Deterrent effects of drink driving enforcement: some evidence from New Zealand. International Journal of Transport Economics, 32(1), pp. 103-109.

Abstract

Using data from New Zealand, this paper examined the deterrent effects of increasing the level of police presence and the apprehension rate and found that increasing either the number of compulsory breath tests performed or the proportion of drivers tested positive for drink driving would significantly reduce the number of fatal crashes on the roads.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
