Safe Lanes on Campus: A Guide for Preventing Impaired Driving and Underage Drinking

By Robert Zimmerman and William DeJong

The Higher Education Center prepared Safe Lanes on Campus: A Guide for Preventing Impaired Driving and Underage Drinking on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, and the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Safe Lanes helps senior administrators, faculty, staff, students, community leaders, enforcement agencies, and campus and community coalitions in choosing prevention strategies appropriate to their campus and their community to address driving under the influence of alcohol by students of all ages and alcohol use by students under the legal drinking age. Safe Lanes includes a review of the scope of the problem of DUI and underage drinking; an approach to campus and community interventions-five areas of strategic intervention related to environmental management: (1) alcohol-free options, (2) normative environment, (3) alcohol availability, (4) alcohol promotion, and (5) policy/law enforcement; a summary of policy and program recommendations in NIAAA's A Call to Action: Changing the Culture of Drinking at U.S. Colleges; descriptions of policies and programs currently being used throughout the United States, with contact information for 22 programs; an overview of campus and community coalitions; an outline of the basic elements of strategic planning and evaluation that campus and community coalitions should follow; and a list of resource publications and organizations.
