Much of its present research concerns relationships between drinking and driving and how to keeep the drinking driver off the road, he said. Research showed that alcohol is involved in half the traffic accidents each year. There also is a need for more research into ways to make ed- ucation programs for drivers more effective and to change social attitudes toward drinking and driving so that all individu- als feel greater responsibility about safety on the roads, he said.
