Improving Alcohol Knowledge in the ACT

Previous studies show that while awareness of the legal blood alcohol limit is high knowledge of the number of standard drinks contained in alcoholic beverages is low. This study sought to understand whether an online survey giving motorists the correct answers could increase knowledge relating to alcohol and thus assist to minimize the potential to drink and drive and maximize the potential for people to make informed decisions about the amount of alcohol consumed. The results of this three phase study suggest that an online alcohol knowledge test can improve ACT resident’s knowledge relating to alcohol. Implications for public policy are outlined.
