This report suggests that passengers who have consumed alcohol have a responsibility to avoid behaviour that puts pressure on drivers and increases the potential for collisions and casualties.

The report was commissioned by the RAC Foundation and RoadSafe and compiled with the assistance of the IAM.

The reportís authors, from Independent Social Research, engaged with young people to examine their car travel habits on social occasions where alcohol has been consumed.

The research was commissioned to inform the development of effective communications and interventions aimed at making car travel safer in such circumstances. It says that passengers have a responsibility to refrain from dangerous behaviours such as distracting the driver, pressurising the driver into taking more passengers than the vehicle is designed for, travelling without a seatbelt, and getting into a car with a drunk-driver.
