Abstract and Keywords

Driving while impaired by alcohol and other substances is a substantial problem for adolescents. This chapter provides an overview of the current state of the literature on adolescent substance-impaired driving (SID), including trends in the rate of engagement by gender, race, and ethnicity, and the effect of specific policies in reducing these rates. Factors that affect adolescent risk for SID are also discussed, including social and parental influences, personality traits, and cognitive factors. Interventions and prevention methods for reducing SID in adolescents are reviewed. The chapter concludes by highlighting future directions for research on this topic, including an increased focus on marijuana-impaired driving; the development of adolescent-specific theoretical models; and the examination of proximal, event-level influences on SID.

Keywords: substance-impaired driving, adolescence, intervention, policy, marijuana, alcohol
