In Traffic Safety and Alcohol Regulation: A Symposium
pgs. 130-140 , (2007)There is substantial evidence that the conditions under which alcohol is sold or provided can influence the extent to which individuals drink to intoxication and combine drinking with high-risk activities such as driving. This study examined the effectiveness of the action taken by the Mexican government in implementing an early closing for the all-night bars in Juarez. This paper reports on the impact of the closing policy on youthful Americans crossing into Mexico to drink, including those considered underage drinkers in the United States, and considers the relevance to controlling unlicensed drinking events in the United States.
