Drunk driving public service announcement by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety( Visual )

in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Watch. They'll say it happened because I was drinking. Sure I was drinking, but I was also eating. Hmm ... That 3rd double martini was dying to get to me. It's a good thing the waiter brought food. Nothing like a good wine with dinner; with a big meal its harmless as water. They'll probably want to give me a blood alcohol test. I don't care. But I'd sure hate to take the test if I hadn't eaten all I did. A meal like I just had really soaks up the alcohol like a sponge. Oh boy, I kind of overdid it tonight with all that eating and drinking. Then everybody knows that you can drink all you want as long as you eat enough. Sure, Mac, sure ...

TV beer commercials and children : exposure, attention, beliefs, and expectations about drinking as an adult by Lawrence Marshall Wallack( Book )

3 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents findings from a study of the effects of televised beer commercials on fifth and sixth grade children (n=468), aged 10-13 years. Each child was interviewed in-person at his or her home. The findings indicated: (1) most children are frequently exposed to beer commercials on television; (2) children's skepticism of television beer commercials was significantly lower among those with the highest level of attention to the commercials; (3) children's beliefs about social aspects of beer consumption, and ritual aspects regarding beer consumption being cool and macho, were significantly related to their attention to beer commercials; (4) most children had moderate to high expectations to drink as an adult and higher drinking expectations were significantly related to exposure to beer commercials, recognition of commercials, recall of the brands advertised, and beliefs about the positive social and ritual use of beer; (5) boys were much more likely than girls to recognize televized beer commercials and to have positive beliefs about beer consumption; (6) boys were significantly more likely to believe that beer commericals "tell the truth" while girls were more likely to believe that beer advertising "tries to get kids to drink;" and (7) boys were significantly more likely than girls to expect to drink when they become adults.

Beer and fast cars : how brewers target blue-collar youth through motor sport sponsorships by David R Buchanan( Book )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study explored how motor sports sponsorships complement and amplify the brewers' media campaigns by joining masculinity, risk, excitement, and beer in the actual "lived" experiences of potential consumers. To document industry expenditures and justifications for motor sports sponsorship, trade journals and newsletters (n=25) and other public documents were examined. A research team attended 14 motor sports events sponsored by the beer industry in Northern California over a 6-month period during 1989 to gather evidence of how the events forge a link between fast cars and beer. Finally, using standard focus group methods, more than 60 students from a nearby high school were interviewed about their attendance at motor sports events, and their attitudes toward motor sports, cars in general, and drinking and driving. Findings showed that of all industry sponsors, brewers were second only to the tobacco industry in amount spent; sports received the largest share of sponsorship dollars; motor sports received the most sponsorship money of all types of sports; the brewing industry spent more than $180 million during 1987 on sports sponsorship; and the annual growth of sponsorship was expected to be triple that of advertising. (A number of specific guidelines for advertising and responsible beverage service at such events are enumerated.) (Bhk)

Speed variance and its influence on accidents by Nicholas J Garber( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to investigate the traffic engineering factors that influence speed variance and to determine to what extent speed variance affects accident rates. Detailed analyses were carried out to relate speed variance with posted speed limit, design speeds, and other traffic variables. The major factor identified was the difference between the design speed of the highway and the posted speed limit. It was determined that speed variance will be minimal if the posted speed limit is between 6 and 12 miles per hour lower than the design speed, and that outside this range, speed variance increases with increasing difference between the design speed and the posted speed limit. Other findings were that: (1) drivers tend to go at increasing speeds as roadway geometric characteristics improve, regardless of the posted speed limit; and (2) accident rates do not necessarily increase with increase in average speed but do increase with increase in speed variance. The results can be used to estimate changes in speed variance due to changes in traffic characteristics and, therefore, can provide traffic engineers with a means for controlling speed variance due minimize accidents.
