ICAP is a not-for-profit organization, supported by major producers of beverage alcohol. It is a resource for all those interested in alcohol policy worldwide. ICAP promotes dialogue involving the drinks industry, the research and public health communities, government, and civil society, encouraging them to work together.
Most ICAP publications are available online, and many have been translated in part or in full into several languages.
Impaired driving that involves alcohol consumption is sometimes referred to as “alcohol-impaired driving,” “driving under the influence” (DUI), “driving while impaired” (DWI), “drunk driving,” or “drink-driving.” While the terminology may differ, there is broad agreement that alcohol-impaired driving is one of the leading causes of road traffic casualties. The severity of the impairment relates to the amount of alcohol consumed. The primary debate about drinking and driving revolves around the most effective measures for prevention—including where to set legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limits and how best to enforce them.
