This study of a Drink Drive Education Program conducted by the Warrnambool Regional Association for Alcohol and Drug Dependence Inc. (WRAADD) between April 1, 1991 and March 30, 1992 produced a profile of an average drink drive offender from a rural community. Some trends can be seen. The drink drive offenders are male, young and capable of achieving high blood alcohol levels (BACs) and then considering themselves fit to drive. Few relationships were found between predicted indicators of problem drinking. No clear relationships were found between second level offenders and other measures, although further data analysis is recommended. This report does not support the maintenance of the current distinction between first and second level offenders.
