dc.description.abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate a peer-led drinking and driving (DD) prevention programme among 111 University of the North (UNIN) undergraduate students aged 17 to 24 years using a pre-post test intervention design. The results showed that the programme was generally effective in bringing about statistically significant positive changes on almost all knowledge measures. It also brought about significant positive changes on some of the attitude measures, behavioural intentions measures, self-esteem, willingness to drink and drive as well as in willingness to prevent a friend from drinking and driving (DD). However, no significant positive changes were observed in willingness to seek alternatives to drinking and driving (DD) and to ride with someone who has been drinking. Thus, the programme experienced some positive, although by no means conclusive indicators of success, towards its intended objectives. Information generated from studies like the present one provides programme planners with data to support programming efforts. en
