Samenvatting This paper addresses the impact of county-level alcohol prohibition - an area less examined in the literature - on fatal alcohol-related motor accidents, taking into account the endogeneity of the prohibition legislation. The empirical results provide evidence that the consumption of drinking and driving is responsive to prohibition-induced changes in individuals' constraints. The results suggest that dry counties have 2.145 fewer fatal alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents than wet counties per year.
