Title:

Trends in Public Information Within the Fairfax Alcohol Safety Action Project, 1976
Authors:
Cheryl W. Lynn
Year: 1977
VTRC No.: 77-R54
Abstract: In general, there was little evidence that the public information countermeasure was effective in increasing awareness or overall knowledge, or in improving attitudes. The major exceptions to this were the self-reported increase in bystander intervention and self-reported decrease in drinking and driving.
