Abstract

The consumption of alcohol has become a part of leisure activities. However, the drinking problem has emerged as a major concern for policymakers. Driving under the influence of alcohol has increased the risk of road traffic collisions resulting in injuries and death. Rules and regulations or policies laid down in response to reduce such problems often recourse to the policies of prohibitions or banning. Despite all, there has been an increase in road traffic collisions due to alcohol in recent years. This article reviews the alcohol-road accident nexus. Literature on road traffic collisions due to alcohol in Delhi and commentaries on rules and regulations, or policies to avoid road traffic collisions are discussed. Consideration of wider cultural practices and nuances of drinking practices at the intersection of transport and health studies could help in policies and planning to avoid drunk driving and road traffic collisions.
