By Andréa dos Santos Nascimento and Maria Lúcia Teixeira Garcia


Analisar como o problema do álcool e direção foi incorporado à agenda política brasileira é o objetivo deste trabalho. Entre as décadas de 1980 e 1990, as taxas dos acidentes de trânsito correspondiam a quase metade dos óbitos por causas externas, com tendências crescentes. Foi nas últimas duas décadas do século XX, que os acidentes de trânsito foram definidos como problema de saúde pública e, dentro da discussão dos acidentes, violência e óbitos por causas externas, a combinação álcool e direção foi configurada como um problema que requer políticas públicas.<br>The objective of this research is the analysis of the manner in which the issue of drinking and driving has been incorporated into the political agenda in Brazil.
