Alcohol-related vehicle crashes pose a significant challenge to public health in suburban communities. The Evesham Saving Lives programme operated between late 2015 and 2019 in two townships in New Jersey. The programme subsidised rideshare (eg, Uber) trips from bars and restaurants to prevent alcohol-related traffic injuries, and is the basis of this month's podcast. Professor Rod McClure interviews David Humphreys, Associate Professor of Evidence-Based Intervention and Policy Evaluation, Research fellow at Green Templeton College, University of Oxford, about the editor’s choice paper of the month titled “Assessing the impact of a local community subsidised rideshare programme on road traffic injuries: an evaluation of the Evesham Saving Lives programme” and available here: https://injuryprevention.bmj.com/content/27/3/232. The Injury Prevention podcast is released on the first Thursday of each month. Please subscribe via all podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher and Spotify.
