The SR4Y baseline study, involving over 11,000 young people, provides new scientific inputs on drink-driving amongst youth in emerging countries. 

In the spotlight: Young people who admit to drink driving:

• Argentina 29% (in the past three months)

• South Africa 23.6% (in the past three months)

• Vietnam 22% (in the last year)

Introduction to the project

Every day, drink-driving affects the lives of millions of young people in emerging countries across the world.

Safe Roads 4 Youth (SR4Y) is a project that aims to gain insight, change attitudes and ultimately save lives amongst young people in some of the countries where drink-driving poses the greatest risk - Argentina, South Africa and Vietnam.

We are the first research-action project to simultaneously test and evaluate the effectiveness of drink-driving prevention actions within these countries.
