Riassunto: Drunk driving is most often viewed as criminal behaviour that is best addressed through the justice system. Ross offers a more practical approach to the problem, one that combines criminal deterrence with other efforts to reduce the number of deaths caused by drivers under the influnce of alcohol.
From Publishers Weekly:
The expectation that long prison sentences will deter people from driving while drunk is dead wrong, according to this in-depth study by University of New Mexico sociologist Ross. Drawing on research from around the world, he demonstrates that the culture of America, with saloons and bars on the highway, beer sold at gas stations and happy hours fueling rush hour, must change. He suggests that deterrence is best achieved by swift and certain punishments, e.g., fines and the revocation of licenses. Offering other solutions--ranging from highway engineering modification to increased availability of public transportation--Ross blames a conservative mindset and liquor-industry propaganda for obscuring the issues. Although the tone here is excessively academic, the message is clear.
