The aim of this project was to increase student’s awareness of road safety and the relationship between alcohol and driving. This was carried out in conjunction with the Garda Road Safety Unit and the DIT interdisciplinary project known as CARS, College Awareness of Road Safety. This project was carried out last year by another student therefore the aim this year was to build and expand on the work that had been done so far. Increasing the student’s awareness was achieved by speaking to class groups to explain the project and asking them to take part by supplying samples of breath and/or urine the morning after they had consumed alcohol. This was intended to demonstrate to the students that it is possible to be still over the limit the day after they have been drinking.
