Abstract

A study was conducted to clarify the environmental factors causing drink-driving in Japan. A hundred and seventy three drivers were asked to fill out a questionnaire about their experiences of drink-driving over the past two years. The questions included the driver's demographic characteristics, frequencies of drinking alcohol and drink-driving, and the attitude of surrounding people to the possibility of drink-driving. A chi-square test was used to clarify factors inducing drink-driving. The results show that drinking habits are associated with drink-driving, and that low recognition of the danger of drink-driving is a factor resulting in drink-driving. Education for drivers is essential to manage drinking habits and to raise recognition of the danger of drink-driving.
