Objective: To examine attitudes and behavior related to drinking-driving among men whose sociodemographic profile places them at increased risk for fatal alcohol-related motor vehicle collisions. Methods: The sample contained 750 young men, including 230 binge drinking drivers (BDD). Results: BDD drank more often, consumed more per drinking episode, and were more likely to believe they could drive safely after binge drinking. BDD were less likely to make plans to avoid drinking-driving and were more likely to have been in an alcohol-related accident. Conclusion: BDD report deviant drinking and drinking-driving behavior and possess casual attitudes toward drinking-driving.
