The article assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the alternative approaches and concludes that certain adjustments in the dram shop laws, coupled with additions to the insurance requirements and vehicle inspection program, will help to make drivers aware of the costs of drinking and driving, thereby reducing the incidence of drunk driving.
