Samenvatting THE POTENTIAL EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TWO FOLLOWING COUNTERMEASURES AGAINST DRUNKEN DRIVING IS ASSESSED IN THIS PAPER: (1) MANIPULATION OF THE RISK OF DETECTION, AND (2) CHANGES OF THE OPPORTUNITY STRUCTURE, I.E. ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION AND MOTORING. EMPIRICAL FINDINGS FOR SWEDEN IN 1976 INDICATE THAT THE FIRST COUNTERMEASURE SEEMS TO HAVE NO OBSERVABLE IMPACT ON THE INCIDENCE OF DRUNKEN DRIVING, AT LEAST NOT IN THE SHORT TERM. THE CLEAREST INDICATION OF THE APPROPRIATE PREVENTIVE MEASURE IS THE STRONG RELATIONSHIP FOUND BETWEEN DRUNKEN DRIVING AND ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION; HOWEVER, SUCH A RELATIONSHIP WAS NOT FOUND FOR MOTORING.
