Multi-component interventions with community mobilization focused on alcohol-impaired driving can include many components, such as: sobriety checkpoints, training in responsible beverage service, education and awareness-raising efforts, and limiting access to alcohol (CG-Motor vehicle injury).
There is strong evidence that multi-component interventions with community mobilization reduce alcohol-related crashes (CG-Motor vehicle injury). Such interventions have been shown to reduce fatal crashes, nighttime injury crashes, and crashes among drivers aged 16-20 in a number of communities (CG-Motor vehicle injury). Multi-component interventions may also lead to cost savings resulting from the reduction in injuries, fatalities and property damage from alcohol-related crashes (Shults 2009).
The Community Trials Intervention to Reduce High-Risk Drinking is an example of a multi-component intervention (SAMHSA-NREPP).
