Online brief Intervention for Queensland’s first-time drink driving offenders
Submission Date: 2019
Drink driving is a persistent contributor to fatalities and serious injuries on Queensland’s roads, and additional intervention strategies are needed to promote the separation of drinking and driving. Based on public consultation and evidence for the effectiveness of Brief Intervention (BI) for reducing alcohol consumption, Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is developing a compulsory online BI for first-time drink driving offenders in Queensland. The introduction of an online BI will complement existing drink driving countermeasures that support positive behaviour change and reduce reoffending.
